I've had really bad back ache in my power back since this mourning. I've noticed as I've gone to the toilet the paper had a pinky streak but there was no blood in my wee.. I've also noticed a couple of redy pink spots and streaks on my blanket but I haven't lost my plug yet.. I'm almost 39 weeks and very confused is it labour or braxton hicksconfused

Personally I knew when it was labour! Start timing things, see if there's a pattern.

It comes and go's and I've had a really tight uncomfortable feeling in my bottom belly and just little painful twinges with relation to my cervix if I move my back hurts that much it makes me cry.. They don't know the exact date I'm due either they're guessing that my little boy will be her on the 22 of this month but it's so painful..

Pattern is definitely the key. Get up and walk around, see if that changes the back ache. If you can have something to eat, fairly bland in case it is labour, toast or cereal etc, and lots to drink too. Is your hospital bag packed? I've had 2 ds and neither time lost my plug, so that may not happen. Good luck, let us know!

I've had braxton hicks a couple of times but this is so much worse it won't seem to go away even walking to the toilet is now a struggle my bags all packed and ready it's horrible I can't sleep and I keep drinking a lot of milk so fully hydrated and things like that

And I've tried eating it just makes me feel really ill with a painful wushu washy feeling in my stomach

I was like that for three weeks before I went into labour properly.
Could be now, could be ages away. No way to tell really. I spent three weeks leaking pink mucus (lost plug two weeks before I gave birth), breathing through contractions and all sorts.
Good luck anyway - at some point you will definitely be in labour wink
