Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

The majority of women go into labor between 39-41 weeks. Increased vaginal pain and pressure with an increased vaginal discharge are likely related to the baby 'dropping' and your cervix 'thinning'. The symptoms you are describing are reason enough to call your doctor to be evaluated for labor. If you are not in labor, it is hard to predict when it will actually occur.
