I'm 40+4 with DC2 and over the last week have been having quite strong cramping/stretching pains very low in my pelvis. They have been totally erratic though and by no means loads of them. the last 5 hours or so, they have increased a bit. Really quite painful that I had to count through the pain when it came (only about 30secs) and it took my breath away.

I didn't have Braxston Hicks with DC1 and have had no bump tightening this time either...just wndering if this could maybe be the start of something more...

Sounds like it, good luck! You could have absolutely ages to go though so take it easy.

Ooo, good luck!

I'm jealous, still got 8 days to go.

Most likely, OP. Good luck grin
