    It all started last Friday night (so over a week now)

    - 2-3 hour periods of frequent (5-10 min apart) BH and menstrual-like cramps (often keeping me up in the middle of the night)
    - frequent bowel movements especially in the very early morning (4am-7am)
    - sharp pains in nether regions
    - I pee, stand up, have to pee again, but can't (so bad I had myself checked for a UTI, but nope doc says just baby's head)
    - occasional rectal pressure
    - no obvious plug, but a bit of stretchy yellow mucous every couple days since last Friday

    My doctor says I'll likely go overdue, so am I stuck like this for the next 25-35 days?

    My mom said she went 23 days like this with 1 out of 4 of 4 of her pregnancies - yuck!

    Oh and as of 35 weeks I was 1.5cm dilated and I believe the head was engaged (doc didn't offer anymore info and I haven't had another internal since then)
