hey girls.

trying not to get my hopes up too much but this morning, from about 10 - 12, started having what i just assumed was braxton hicks, but they got increasingly more painful, although not unbearable, and more frequent, coming about every 5-7 mins. but got up a made some dinner and stuff and they almost fizzled out. have still been having them, but not often at all really. no regularity at all now. but still coming. am thinking this may be the start of things but really dont want to think it is until im certain. the only thing that puzzles me, is that when i have them, i get a lot of pressure bearing down causing sharp pains in what i assume is my cervix, and making me feel like i need a poo!! even tho i dont!

what does any1 think???

all help much appreciated!!
