This is how dc2's labour started - but at 41 weeks.
Dc1 labour was continuous backache initially - again at 41 weeks.

What's the odds this is (slightly) premium labour? Hope not - feel bloody knackered already!

Premature not premium!

Sounds like it could be.

Don't worry too much though. 37 weeks is considered full term so if you do deliver baby should be ok.

I gave birth at 37 weeks to ds. He was 5lb 3oz. Tiny. But fine

Dd was 38 weeks and 5lb 14 oz

SusanAndBinkyRideForth Mon 04-Jul-16 12:25:15

Aww dinky! Both my older 2 were nearer 9lb....

Feeling bloody awful now, and wondering about ringing triage - the diarrhoea is setting off really strong cramps

good luck!

Please get checked over, 3rd labour could be a lot quicker than your first 2. Good luck

NeedACleverNN Mon 04-Jul-16 14:49:25

I would ring yes

No return of the OP - I hope it's good news!

Sorry - been a bit out of it and poorly.

Triage did NOT want me in - was told it was a stomach bug and therefore dangerous to newborns etc. And so it turned out to be when it got worse and vomiting followed sad

Still feel pretty grim, but the contractions the abdominal cramps set off have stopped at least.

NeedACleverNN Tue 05-Jul-16 21:16:50

Oh bless. Try and relax as much as you can. Sleep as much as you can. You will need it

apatheticfallacy Tue 05-Jul-16 22:29:30

Oh you poor thing! I hope you have dioralyte and someone to cheer you up!

gruber Tue 05-Jul-16 22:35:26

Oh, you have my sympathy - I had that at 34 weeks and it set off VERY strong contractions. It's quite grim. Hopefully you'll feel much better soon.

SusanAndBinkyRideForth Thu 07-Jul-16 19:27:08

Oh ffs sorry whinge but I just can't seem to bounce back from this bug. Still feel utterly drained and it's all I can do to do school runs, and sort the toddler all day - come evening i just have no energy and am having to get DH to make dinner and clear up and help with bedtime etc sad
Or maybe that's just being 37weeks pregnant at the age of 42. With 2 other small children confused

It sounds like you have a lot going on which is culminating in you being completely wiped out. Just take each day as it comes and rest as much as you can. Just think, in no more than a month, this will all be over and you'll be cuddling a brand new baby.
