    So yesterday I was sitting on the couch, watching TV when all of the sudden I got these EXTREME period like pains that would go away after about a minute of being there but like 5 minutes, come back. I don't really know how to explain them, but they hurt so so so bad. Then later that night, I was out to dinner with family and when I went to the bathroom, I discovered I had lost my plug. It wasn't blood tinged or anything, but it was definitely my plug. Then throughout the night, I kept getting sharp pains in my cervix area whenever I would move, or whenever LO would move. I also kept waking up because even though I'm on medication to keep contractions away, the contractions seemed to be getting stronger and reaching around to my back more.

    Does this seem like actual labor is starting?
    Because I've already had the shots for LO's lungs, they won't try to stop labor anymore, so I want to know if you all think I should be getting ready to go in, seeing as I don't have my hospital bag packed yet

    What do you think?

    Sounds like it could be labor. Drink 2 BIG glasses of water and lie down on your left side. If the pains go away they are just powerful Braxton Hicks, if not, call you Dr and good luck!
