hiya, im 37+4, ive had a regular braxton hicks for about 7 weeks now, the uncomfy tightenings etc, however, last night they became painful (not unbearable but enough to know of). I havent had a show or loss of waters. however, i find it difficult to wee, like the baby is that low its really pressing on my bladder, also the pressure when standing up or sitting down is really bad. just wondering could this be the start of labour possibly? i have a son but was induced so spontaneous birth is all new to me and scaring me quite a bit! thanks
Sounds to me like your baby's head has engaged The low pressure feeling is where the baby has dropped right down low into your pelvis. Could be like this for weeks or you could go into labour soon. It's a waiting game now.
