im 39+2 and for the past week have been bed bound due to my right ribs feeling like they're going to tear and in pain in my back where my right ribs are, she's been engaged for 2 weeks now, I have been losing small amounts of my mucus plug since Tuesday (4 days) and (sorry tmi) I keep feeling like I need to pop but can't! I probably sound like a wimp but I'm so fed up of being pregnant (in a nice way!) I just want my little girl her? Can anyone help me with coping with the pain? And if anyone experienced going to labour soon after these symptoms?? Thank you :)

Baby is wriggling down and fully engaging so due to the pressure of their head, it makes you feel like you need a poo. This unfortunately isnt going away until baby is out but it's a good sign! It also means as baby is head down feet are up! So likely the cause of rib pains. The only relief I had from my pains was during walking. I was exhausted but I more or less walked my second baby out 😂 you can lose your plug and it can reform so it's not much of a sign I'm afraid. Hopefully it's soon for you x
