I've been having pains for 2 weeks now. The pains have been getting worse over the past couple of days and I haven't slept for 3 days because of them. I keep getting bad period pains about every 20 minutes aswell as bad pains and shooting pains down there. My legs are achy and keep getting shooting pains. I feel constantly tired and sick. I haven't had the show yet. I rang the midwife last night and she said that I may be in slow labour. Am I in slow labour and what does that mean??
