woke up this morning with the worst bowels ever. Had really bad cramping until I went, now I just have period pains, feeling like I need to go again but unable to confused is this normal? Baby's moving around rapidly and I'm scared it's distressing him. Also when I did go, my bump went really tight and tensed upconfused

Sounds like the start of labour to me!

Sounds like you're going into labour - good luck!

Chickenfillets Thu 07-May-15 08:42:41

Really?? I don't have any severe pains just period pains that come for a few seconds then go again. I feel completely normal in every other way though? Just feels like a dicky stomach.

CanIGoToBedNow Thu 07-May-15 08:42:57

The diarrhoea is just your body clearing out getting ready for baby coming.... So hopefully no 'accidents' when you're pushing!

Period pains and bump tightening could possibly be Braxton Hicks or contractions!

Oooo how exciting smile thanks!

I hope your all right grin my dsis had a dream I was going to go into labour today. How spooky if I do!

LeonoraFlorence Thu 07-May-15 09:05:01

Sounds like me exactly 10 weeks ago today. I'm sitting here cuddling my 10 week old DD smile good luck!

tinytops Thu 07-May-15 09:11:40

Baby's coming grin

Sweetpea80 Thu 07-May-15 10:52:40

Definitely sounds like labour is starting. I had exactly the same symptoms when I had my DD2.
good luck Chickenfillets flowers

This is how my labour with my ds started, the runny tummy cramps were actually early contractions. See if they increase or become regular. Good luck!

OMGBabyNo3 Thu 07-May-15 11:12:39

I'm with everyone else. Def early labour. Get some rest now whilst you can!! X

Chickenfillets Thu 07-May-15 12:01:33

Ahhhh thanks everyone. Still only got mild period pains nothing more happening just yet. Also still feeling like I really need to poo but can't confused

slithytove Thu 07-May-15 12:04:17

FructoseTart Thu 07-May-15 12:07:32

How exciting!

Body's natural way of clearing out ready for the big finale!

Chickenfillets Thu 07-May-15 12:16:15

Yep all packed and ready have been for ages grin can't stop peeing aswell, had more trips to the toilet today than I have in my whole pregnancy.

Hippymama1 Thu 07-May-15 12:32:43

How exciting! Good luck with everything! grin

HollyJollyDillydolly Thu 07-May-15 12:42:54

Definitely sounds like things are Happening. smile
I also had to wee loads in labour because baby was wriggling down to get out. Hopefully not long now then.

Chickenfillets Thu 07-May-15 13:42:55

Managed to go toilet again and pains seem to have died down sad maybe it was just a dicky tummy.

HollyJollyDillydolly Thu 07-May-15 13:45:52

Oh no! Get on that birthing ball or go for a walk/up and down the stairs smile

JugglingLife Thu 07-May-15 13:47:49

shameless placemarking how exciting! We love a live birth thread. Get moving around chicken fillets, brisk walk to get things going again. Good luck!

Chickenfillets Thu 07-May-15 13:54:36

Iv been up and down the stairs sorting washing out cleaning up, I'm now currently bouncing away on my ball. Come on baba! grin
