Ok so I'm 40+9! I am having lower back pain and have been for the last 30 or so hours, managed to sleep last night but woke up every hour or so with pain. Tonight it's coming at the front aswell! It's painful but not yet what I would say regular. I've been trickling water since last night (this could potentially be pee I am not sure) lol I totally don't trust my judgement at the moment oh and my lady bits feel like someone has kicked her with steel toe boots on??? Any advice greatly appreciated dont want to phone and feel silly if it's nothing x

Well, waters went this morning.... Have been continuous since 12am feel like a tap lol! Went in like MAU advised .... Que the worst experience of my life. Total miscommunication between midwives which resulted in them admitting me without informing me and a young midwife actually raising her voice telling me I should be quiet and not question her as she works the ward so she knows best (downstairs midwife had told me something completely different I was genuinely just asking a question) honestly the way she spoke to me was disgusting. Oh and apparently I was "deluded" if I thought it was my waters as it was clearly just discharge lol ok so I'm not a HCP but even I can tell the difference!! Sooooo as I haven't had many contractions and got myself in such a state crying etc a lovely older midwife came and calmed me down and chatted to me so back in at 2 tomorrow . Sorry for the long post just gutted I let her get to me I was so calm and prepared this morning now I'm back at home exhausted and apprehensive about tomoz x
