Yesterday, my legs ached like they do when I get my period. Today, I feel like I'm about to start. My lower abdomen has that achy/crampy feeling.

I know some have said early labor feels like you're getting your period, but on Friday, my cervix was closed tight.

I've had those for about 2 weeks. It sucks! It's your body gearing up, I don't think you are going to go into labor today though

Yeah I've had that pre-period cramping and low back ache on and off for a couple of weeks now. I get excited every time, but it eventually goes away.

It's probably not time yet, but just as a heads up, your cervix can go from closed up tight to full on labor in a few hours. I've known several people that has happened to. You don't necessarily dilate over days or weeks.

Like everyone else said, it's just your body's way of gearing up for the big day. I've been having that cramping feeling almost daily for about 2 weeks.

And, just to second what another poster said, with my first baby I was closed up tight at my checkup at 38w4d and she was born 2 days later. In all honesty, cervical dilation and effacement mean absolutely nothing until you are actually in labor.

YES, I have been super crampy and sore lately. I was starting to thin out at my appointment today.

I have felt this way for weeks and weeks. It has increased in the last few so I am hoping that means labor is closer because I am definitely ready to have this baby!

With my 2nd I was not dilated at a checkup and a few days later I was at a 4 and in full active labor. With this one I have been at about a 1 to 3cm (depending on who puts their hand up there, lol. Going to ask my doc at my apt tomorrow why such a big discrepancy between him and another doctor) and that has been for two weeks now.

Hope you get some relief.
