  • Hi Everybody,
    I am new to Baby Corner but not new to pregnancy!
    I am pregnant for the 4th time but with my 3rd child. My due date is july 24th so I have another 5 weeks to go. 2 weeks ago I am 99% sure I felt my baby drop. I look lower, I breathe easier and my boobs don't hang on my chest anymore! Since then I have also had a lot of on and off nausea along with diarrhea cramping. Not so much the diarrhea...just the cramping and lower back ache. Today (June 15th) I've had the cramping ALL day and gone diarrhea or loser stool 3x. Also, 2 weeks ago when I felt baby drop I did loose a bigger string of thick sticky mucous but have not lost more since then. Could these symptoms go on for another 5 weeks yet or is it possible I might have this baby earlier then later??

  • It's entirely possible that nothing is happening and you won't give birth for another 5 weeks. But if you're worried, you should call your OB/midwife just to be sure.
