I am 37 weeks and 2 days pregnant. I have been under a lot of stress lately and I was told that stress can induce labor. I was having contractions 1 week ago that were every 10 minutes apart for about 2 hours but they gradually decreased. I've had anywhere from 3-8 strong contractions a day since last saturday (one week ago). 2 nights ago I had mild contractions all through the night, and yesterday I had mild contractions all day that strengthened around 6pm and began occurring every 15-25 minutes until around 10 pm. Around 10 pm I only had a few here and there. My baby started dropping around 28 weeks but very gradually; 2 days ago I could physically feel her head extremely low and her kicks are around my belly button rather than up in my ribs. She has also been extremely active during my pregnancy, but she has not been as active the past 2 days. I had an appointment with my doctor 4 days ago and I was between 1 & 2 cm dialated. I've been having diarrhea and increased discharge for about 2 weeks but withing the past week my discharge has been thicker and had a slight color to it. I've also had an increase of lower pack pain in the past few days. I've looked these signs up online but I was hoping to get some suggestions or experiences from women who have been or are going through this. Thanks in advance!
