Hope your okay jcliff and hope baby stays put for the next few weeks!

Glad you went in . It's always good to listen to your body . Take it easy these next few weeks , are they going to see you again soon ? Baby's a good size , which helps if they're preemie ! (My DD1 was born at 32 weeks weighing 5lb4, she was off breathing support by day 3, NGT removed at 7 days & fully breastfed, , she was home on day 13) . Rest up mama

I'm going through the same things you're mentioning and I'm a little scared! I'm 30 weeks and 2/3 days, myself. I've had contraction type pains the past 2 days/nights; period like cramps every 20 minutes, but mostly pertaining to "over doing it". I have been in bed most of the late afternoon into evening and they eased up after 2-3 hours of rest. I'm thinking I need to call soon. I felt up in there earlier due to the contraction feelings (best guess) with clean hands and it feels very soft and potentially open a bit. I didn't want to prod around, so that's best I can say. I'm wigged out by the feeling like his head is right there and low as well. His hiccups were normally around my belly button and today they were like where my uterus was post-pregnancy. It really hurt to walk around today and my pelvis feels like it's going to crack.

Your post/responses are making me take it a little more seriously. I just don't want to call on thanksgiving tomorrow O_O Hoping with taking it easy, I can feel okay for a while without any worrisome feelings. He definitely feels like he's dropped. Way too soon.

I haven’t personally experienced this, but thought I’d mention (hopefully as encouragement), that my friends daughter was head down and engaged very early on (if I remember correctly, it was from 30-31 weeks). She was getting a lot of the same types of discomfort and pain that you’ve described - and her doctor had also predicted that she might be an early arrival. I know her Bub stayed pretty much engaged from that point onwards, and she just had her at 39 weeks and 1 day. So hopefully you’ll also be fine and baby will stay in there a good few more weeks!

For sure, this is really similar to my last pregnancy. I felt so much pressure really early on and she just got her head right down there for weeks!! I was overdue with my first so it never even crossed my mind it might mean early labour! We made it to 38 weeks no problem!
