Ring them and let them know. They'll advise you and calm you down. Good luck!

Ring the hospital as pp said. Don't panic you'll be fine. This is what you've been waiting for. How exciting.

How wonderful, you will meet your baby soon smile

Yes, you should ring the hospital if you want to. They will advise when they want you to come in (e.g. when contractions are close). Remind DH it's you having this baby and if you want to call the hospital you will do so wink

Are you having any other symptoms (contractions / back ache etc) yet?

Are you having any contractions? How many weeks are you?

Not yet, I feel like I've got light cramps like period pain in my lower tummy but that could be my bowel from the spicy curry I ate last night wink have made a nice strong cuppa am going to drink that and hopefully get this curry out of my system before I go into established labour grin I've got to pop up the hospital but the mw on the phone said just to take my time. Hopefully this baby holds out for a little bit blush

K8eee Tue 01-Apr-14 06:34:05

Oh and I'm 41+2 weeks so baby is well and truly cooked grin
