Good morning basically I'm 40+3 weeks pregnant with dc2 since yesterday I've been in agony with my lower back to the point I can't walk as its to painful, sit down is painful sleeping is painful I can't remember ever being like this with ds, I just feel like I can't cope with this pain anymore.

2 nights i've woken up loads of times in pain I get contraction like pains like that seem to just come and go as they please too. I just haven't got a clue if to call the number on the back of my book or go to the walk/in doctors just round the corner 1st?

What do you ladies think?

Call the maternity ward - sounds like labour. Good luck!

I'd call the maternity unit my labour with DS1 was like this. The pain was a UTI and I was admitted to the antenatal ward until I went to delivery suite.

I think they'd want to check out whatever was causing you this much pain.

How are you doing today OP? Hoping that you have had your baby by now.

Hey not had baby yet, Been having contractions every 10 minutes since 3am this morning, had my bloody show all throughout the day too was hoping I would have her today but is looking unlikely now confused

Sorry to hear that you're still waiting. By the sound of things you won't be waiting much longer though! I bet that all this build up will mean that you have a speedy labour once things properly kick off. Good luck smile

Hi yes you were right it was a build up started getting contractions at 3am then had my little girl 24 hours later (long time but worth every second) she is now a week and 1 day old and an absolute angel so thankyou to everyone that replied smile
