For the last 1.5 hours I've been getting pains in my back and tightenings in my bump. It comes in waves reaches a peak then receeds. I've times them and there anything between 5-10 mins apart and last 45-60 sec. Could thus be labour or is it just back ache. I've not lost my mucous plug or had a show that I'm aware of? Any advice would be greatly recieved?

Hi everyone, well definately in labour, only 3 cm but they can stretch it to 5cm. Being kept in due to raised BP. My hair is still straight at the mo. Just waiting for waters to break. If they don't, they will break them in a few hours. I'm very excited now, and my DH is being great.

emzypoo Thu 10-Jan-13 09:14:41

I wonder if her hair has managed to stay straight lol I had that idea too but was was sick all over myself inc hair after birth so I didn't quite have the look I wanted lol. Hope you are ok x

Ooh hope its going well

Kittenkatzen Thu 10-Jan-13 07:39:08

No update from OP for a few hours- wonder if she has gone to the hospital? exciting

Good luck OP.

Straightened hair- grin!

If the pain is in your back and a bit erratic I would spend time on all fours circling your hips. Might help the baby get in a good position for labour (sounds like he/she might be back to back at the moment - not disastrous but not the easiest position either). I might be too late of course!

Hope all goes really well for you.
