    Im 34 weeks today and I've been having Braxton hicks. My pelvic area has had alot of pressure for at least a month but now it feels like all the pressure went straight down to my vagina instead of being at my hip/waist area. Today he's been moving alot! Should I be prepared for an early baby or a right on the due date baby?

    Pictures are of the times, days, and what happens

    Hi! Cramps are normal at this point in pregnancy. Your body is getting ready! However, that isn’t an indicator that labor is near. If your water breaks, then you know it’s go time. But the cramps are probably contractions- I’ve been having them since 31w5d. Was in labor and delivery 3 times- dilated to 2cm, 70% effaced and I’m 34+3 today and still pregnant! Unfortunately there’s no real way to know when your body will be ready for real labor!
