    Default 38 weeks pregnant

    I am 38 weeks pregnant and it's been so uncomfortable!
    I can feel the baby very low and I can't even stand or walk properly. Every time the baby moves I feel weakness in my legs and Braxton hicks are more than uncomfortable.
    No increase of discharge really.
    Have been feeling nauseous in the mornings.
    Is labor near?
    3rd pregnancy, still nervous and scared about labor!

    Hi 37 weeks here!

    I had 2-3 nights of next to no sleep because my contractions were SO painful and regular - no discharge, two internal exams and nothing happening with my cervix whatsoever!!

    I hope for your sake labour is near, but according to my OB the increase in BH even when painful can still mean things are ages away!

    Hi Tubster, sounds very uncomfortable- especially with other children to look after. Your Heath carer (midwife or obstetrician) should be able to do an internal and perhaps a stretch n sweep or even just an examination to see if you have started to dilate at all.
    I hope baby comes soon for you- I know exactly how you feel. It feels like it will never end. Hugs.
