I wonder if anyone else has had a similar experience and offer some advice.

Im currently 40+4 weeks pregnant and seem to have had all the signs of labour except contractions.

I have had nausea and vomiting, loose stools frequently, constant period pains, mucous plug has come away and had a bloody show. Baby is fully engaged and having a lot of pressure low down. I have had the nesting instinct, remained active and use a birthing ball alot.

I have had what i thought might be contractions but they never last long and are not unbearable an go away after a while.

From what i can tell my body is giving all the signals its ready but nothing is happening. Please help

Hi Dylan, maybe you are going through some form of stop-start labour? My labour was spread over three days and I had some of what you describe and intermittent phases of contractions as well.

The good news is that you almost certainly don't have long to go until labour starts thanks
