None grin I just woke up having contractions, had nothing beforehand, no show, no bh's, not a thing!

Just BH getting stronger (though they started at 20 weeks and only with my 2nd dc) I guess I had 'twinges' too. I was analysing every feeling for weeks but actual labour started by me waking up at 12.30 and having a REAL contraction and knowing 'this is it!' (40+1)

Ps the show/waters breaking thing didn't happen until I was in established labour (with both dc's)

I had a really heavy, dragging feeling in my thighs

that was about 5pm and then I went into labour

but I did wake up that morning just knowing that that was going to be the day

I keep looking at this thread hoping someone will say '9 months of pregnancy'

Good luck, hope your baby comes soon

Iv woke up this morning after a terrible night of backache and cramps. Feels like someone has kicked me in the lower spine continuously sad and my legs are weak and sore. Feel like I could even cry I feel so rubbish!

sad Poor you op. Can't be long now surely. Warm bath and.paracetamol?

mom2rhysnruby Fri 19-Oct-12 11:56:14

Feeling very much the same too sad
I decided it would be a great idea to do housework, sort kitchen cupboards out & help build a chest of drawers yesterday, needless to say i feel like ive broke my back! No motivation today either.
Im hoping my clary sage oil is in the post today! I need this baby out now sad xx
