Phone labour ward. If I was you id want to looked at see if anything was happening!

Call the unit and go in. It could still be labour without waters or a show.

I have had three Dds and didn't have show it waters with any of them. The second two labour's were under an hour.

Make sure when you phone you say how much pain you are in. Can you talk when you are contracting?

Sorry just saw this is your second. Please phone ASAP!

No I can't talk when pain hits but I've had these tightnings before I called mw and they admitted me for a few days but nothing happened so they sent me home

This time how ever is much worse and more intense I don't want to call mw just in case they want to admit me again just to send me home again

Don't take any chances.
My second labour was 1.5 hours.

How are things this morning, OP?

I'm just the same

I called mw and she said to wait and see what happens I'm not convinced that I can

OMG samandkat I could have written your thread myself, that is exactly how I am feeling, second baby and currently 37 + 4! I have sporadic stomach ache/pain and constant lower back pain today. I had to call DH home from work as I was in such discomfort I couldn't focus on DS1. I am currently sat on sofa with baggy t-shirt on and hot water bottle on my lower back.

I think this may be a sign of our bodies getting ready to go but now I'm over worried about labour if these pains are anything to go by!

Let me know if any other symptoms occur and try a hot water bottle on your back xx
