  • it is lower. Ive done the odd bit of housework but thats it, the same I do everyday.
    I also feel really sick?

  • Could be labour, i threw up quite a few times in labour. Have an early night just in case, you need to save your strength.

  • oh I couldnt sleep now Im too excited. Think I had a contraction just now but then again I had a few monday night and yesterday but they stopped.
    With my daughter I was getting contractions on and off for 2/3 days before the real thing kicked in
  • with my first I had really bad backache at the start of labour and felt really sickly too so it could be the start of something x
  • it could be slow labour too?!
    last night i was up and down with nausea, heartburn and needing to pee. not the easiest night lol. take it easy! get hubby to do housework (haha, i know, the thought makes me laugh too!). definately put your feet up though and get lots of rest, just in case

  • MummyK - fat chance! ha

    becci boo - how long from getting that backache did you start real labour?

  • Well the backache and sicky feeling started on xmas eve, eased off christmas day but my waters started leaking on christmas day and I started getting my 1st contractions around 11pm on christmas day but rhys wasn't born till early hours on 27th lol.
    So I'd say proper labour started about 2 days later up to then the pains were just like bad period type pains across my back and stomach x
  • Ooooo - so exciting. Keep us posted. Hope it's soon! x
  • hey girls, I havent been able to get on here all day to update sorry!
    Anyway went to bed last night at half 9 and I had 3 contractions about 10mins apart and they stopped arrggghhh. I was awake until midnight really achey and getting horrible backache, baby was hurting me so I had a bath then went to sleep.
    Had some painful backache today but thats its.
    disappointed now!

I had pains (have no idea what a contraction feels like as this is my first) at 5:05 then at 5:25 and then at 5:50 but they seem to be slower down and coming every 40 mins or so. Also had bad belly this morning.

  • thanks hun,
    Im just constantly on egde, analysing every twinge!
    Have you had any other symptoms?
    I get a headache everyday and feeling sick
    Spoke to Vicki on fb earlier and she said she had what im describing the week leading upto to the birth. She would have a couple of contractions at night then wake up with nothing in the morning like me!!
    Yours do sound like it though
    have everything crossed for you too

  • No nothing else really, to be honest it's hard to know as I have this sily SPD so it's like I have no idea if it is the pain from that or actualy pain from something else. My back hurts most of the time now, actually just running a nice hot bath as I type this to ease it.

    My bump is rock hard as well but she just does not stop moving!! I am hoping my sweep on tuesday will help and she will tell me my cervix is thin and it wont be long but I have a bad feeling I am going to go over and be induce!

  • I am having my sweep on Tuesday too!!!!!
    We can update each other after hehe
    I think Ill go over too unless I have her tomoro which I doubt!
    Ella wont stop moving either and I think she has changed position as her movements really hurt and feel different. My tummy feels soft sometimes which scares me but when I get a contractions it goes rock hard.
