Re: 37 weeks and contractions for 2days. advice!!!!
I would call your OB and talk to him about it. With my last pregnancy I had contractions off and on from 37w to 40w4d when I delivered. They weren't Braxton Hicks but the progression was really slow from them. The best explanation I got for why I went through the last month like that was because my baby was malpositioned, so it was my body's way of turning her into the correct position and then once she was in the right spot they'd stop until she moved into the wrong position again. If you are feeling a lot of kicks in your tummy going out instead of in your ribs or your c-sec is scheduled due to breech or transverse positioning, I'd check out the spinning babies website for sure! It will have some things you can do during contractions to help the baby turn into the correct position and if she's ready either labor will start and if she's not the contractions will stop once she turns.
