Second pregnancy, you think I would know better after a previous 4 day labour.

Today: emptied bowels in a major way TMI sorry!
lower back ache
cramping feeling at bottom of bump- period pains
Another show- had lots of discharge in the last few days

I'm only 32 weeks. Been getting more and more uncomfortable past few days Bh's etc.
I'm uncomfy but not in actual pain. This is how my last labour started I think. I didn't realise what was going on tbh.

I know its probably a case of could be but could also be nothing.
Could someone just reassure me please. I'm feeling a tad hormonal as it is!

I think I'd get checked out, especially as you're only 32 weeks
good luck!

Ring labour ward if you have had a show at 32weeks.

At 32 weeks they will probably want to administer steroids to.make sure babies lungs are properly matured if there is any chance you may be close to labour.

Agree, would ring labour ward asap.

You can get checked out and come back and tell us it was all a waste of time and we are over-reacting.

But please go and get checked.

Oh blimey!
It wasnt a bloody show, is that ok?
I was expecting you all to tell me its all fine and I'm worrying about nothing!

Right I'll get on the phone. Poor DP, I've already had a hormonal tantrum this morning!

I'll report back asap.

I lost some tiny parts of my show at 25 weeks.

I delivered at 27 weeks.

It may be nothing, but based on what you have said definitely reason to be checked.

You may have a bug which caused your bowel motion which.irritated your uterus causing a bit of cramping, which will lead to nothing (which happened to me with my 3rd pg).

The bowel motion may be because you are gearing up for labour.

You don't know which is cause and effect or if they are related. If you were 36+ weeks I would probably wait and see but not at 32.

Ok well rang and was told to give it an hour.
Oddly feel bit better. Bump pains have stopped but lower back ache feels labour like.
Will call back and see.
