    I'm here! I dont' remember when exactly I posted, but I had contractions Tuesday through Thursday really bad. I was admitted Tuesday night and left Wednesday, being put on partial bedrest. I'm supposed to be off my feet as much as possible. Still having contractions, but not as often or as painful. It feels like the baby is about to fall out lol. 24 weeks tomorrow, and next Tuesday they will do the test for preterm labor.

    I was admitted at 37 weeks with him for being in labor, I was 4cm when I got there and within an hour I was at 5, so they admitted me, and 4 hours later I was sent home lol. They thought I would be back that night, actually told me not to go far, and I didn't have him until 5 days before his due date! I was very annoyed lol.

    I was tested for preterm labor today because of all my cramping. Hopefully tomorrow they will call and say its negative. I guess the doctor was a little worried because I had none of this with DS.

    I did ask my doctor about the pressure down there because I have tons of it too. He did and internal and the babies head is sitting right on my cervix. So your baby might be in the same position.

    Hopefully your tests comes back negative. Keep us updated.

    Yeah, he's definitely way down there. I felt hiccups for the first time today and it felt like my crotch was hiccuping LOL! It was quite a weird sensation. I always feel movement down there.
