Hello everyone! I'm new to the message boards. I am due with baby number 3, Ryan Nathaniel. on December 16th. I have a lot of questions, which you would think is weird since this is my third child, but this pregnancy seems different.
It's been 5 years since I've given birth.
I woke up yesterday morning at 3:30am because I felt this really sharp pain in my abdomen. I went to the bathroom and when I tried to walk back into bed, I got really sharp twinges in my perenial area. Then I laid in bed through 2 hours of Braxton Hicks (I hope) contractions. Yesterday afternoon, I had 3 different people tell me I looked as though the baby had dropped. I've felt a lot of lower pressure, back aches and now my feet are swollen. I go to the doctor today for my check up, but I was just wondering if anyone else is having similar symptoms?
I was induced with my first 2 children, so I've never had a real labor.
I feel so silly because you would think I could tell the difference between false and true labor. Do you think maybe this is an onset?

Look forward to hearing from you all!

Loving wife to Shawn for 10 years...
Proud mommy to:
Nickolas Zane, 6
Brenna Rachelle, 5
And anxiously awaiting...
Ryan Nathaniel
