Labor Watch thread


This is my 4th, so i totally know that all the symptoms in the world can mean absolutely nothing, and no symptoms can mean anything...but i think its fun to do labor watch, or well, at least keep me busy lol.

I went 41+4 w #1, 38+3 w #2, and 41+0 w #3.

Anyone want to join? Post your updated stats and what pregnancy this is for you. [Technically this is my 7th pregnancy, but my 4th healthy one]

36 week check - cervix was hard, closed, and not thinned out whatsoever, but anterior (forward/low and no longer posterior [high])
37 week check - cervix was very very soft, 50% thinned out, my outer cervix was 1CM but inner cervix closed.

Ive been.having menstrual cramping all over my bump and also back aches.and pressure that.comes and goes, all week. Monday i really thought it was.going to turn into somethibg but it never did.

I go back in one week.

How all are you doing? Any updates?

Hi, I’ll join you!

In the Uk we don’t get as many checks as this but I am 40+5 today. Absolutely no signs so far, baby no1 arrived at 41 weeks exactly but I had had a show and he was engaged from 38 weeks or so.

This one is back to back and still pretty high up so I’m spending a lot of time on all fours ogling!

Here’s hoping for some movement soon!

This is my first so I have nothing to base it on!

At 36 weeks I was 50-60% effaced, but not dilated at all.
At 37 weeks they didn't check so I don't know for sure, but after a really rough day on Tuesday my husband brought home some gloves and checked me and said I was about 1cm dilated, which is still nothing really. He's a family doctor who does a little OB so I swear it's not as crazy as it sounds.

I have had lots of cramps and uterus tightening and back aches this week. I felt nothing before this week so it has been annoying.

Next appointment is for 38 weeks on Monday!

Iím currently 39+5 and waiting!

This is my third pregnancy, both of my older boys were born at 41+2 so it might be over a week before I go into labour. Iím booked to go in on the 28th if he hasnít arrived by then, thatís 10 days over, so hopefully he turns up before then!

Iíve not really had any symptoms so far - he feels low and Iíve had Braxton Hicks on and off but no show or anything. I havenít got a clue what my cervix is doing as they donít check in NZ until youíre overdue. Iím having a sweep next Thursday if no action before then so will find out more then if Iím still pregnant.

Hi! I am 38+5, with #3.

Last Tuesday I was 1cm, soft cervix, had a sweep done.
Thursday I started losing mucous plug and have been losing it ever since. Lots of BH. Had second sweep done this tuesday no change on the inside...More pelvic pressure and back pain since but still waiting.

only 36+2 today but they may want to induce at 38 weeks since i have Obstetric Cholestasis, but my midwife is hoping that is that has to happen we can get labor started on my own without intervention.

my first was natural went into labor on my own at 39+2 and my son was planned c section ( he was breech)

36 week check and I was maybe a fingertip dilated, but cervix still pretty high according to Dr, but baby's head was right there. Likely won't be checked again for several weeks

Checking in - 40+6
Done a lot of walking today and getting more braxton hicks than usual, some with a little period pain but not really enough to get me excited!
Sweep tomorrow, went naturally with my first with no intervention so am a little nervous

38 weeks today with baby #3. Been getting braxton hicks and lost some plug today but it wasn't bloody or anything so I don't think Labour is close. I went overdue with dd1 (11 days) and dd2 (9 days) so I'm pretty sure nothing major will change for at least 2 weeks. Won't get checked until 40 weeks xx
