I was having severe pain almost like lil man was trying to break free last night through my ribs and contractions (or at least what felt like menstrual cramps) all night last night especially laying on left side. This morning I had to call into work again because of them and feeling nauseated.
I called the Dr's office and nurses line called back and explained what I COULD be feeling was just Trey getting into position or my cervix dilating. But after I told her with my first child I never really felt the contractions as she described (like women in movies/tv shows screaming and buckling to the floor) and I only really got back labor, she scheduled me to come in for the Dr to check me.

I only gained 1.3lbs since last week's appt and the dr said I am closer to a 2cm but not quite there. She also felt his head so she confirmed he is head down and she said I am JUST NOW thinning out but still thick enough right now. She said I could be this way for the next 3-4 weeks or I could go into labor and deliver tomorrow. The dr informed me to keep timing my contractions and if they get to be 5-7 minutes apart consistently for at least 30-40 minutes to go into L&D and have them monitor me for 2 hours. Oh and she also went ahead and did my GBS (group B strep) test. I will hopefully get results before next appointment
