So, I'm 36 weeks pregnant with my dirst child. Recently Ive been having stomach ache sorta pains, and feeling pressure along the top part of my abdomen, beneath my boobs. All of the articles I've read about labor and contractions says the should occur in your lower abdomen. I'm so confused with this, is it normal? I have had braxton Hicks contractions, but is this other pain I'm describing contractions as well? Also, I have read up on the signs of labor, because I'm scared that I wont know when I'm truly in labor. My doctor has confirmed that my son has shifted downward, and is now in position for birth. I have had diarrhea lately.. (which is apparently an early sign of labor) despite all of the iron supplements I'm taking. But the mucus plug thing confuses me, so accordibg to what I've read, it can be red, brown, pink, or clear. Then how would I know if something was up?? It could just be discharge. I'm hoping my water will break and determine that yes, I am in fact in labor, whenever it happens. But I've read that sometimes that doesn't happen till you are dilated enough to start pushing. Please help!
