Heyy im 36+4
A week ago my baby was 2/5engaged and 2 weeks before that she was 3/5 engaged so heading in the right direction!
These last few days i have had little motivation to do anything after having nesting in the days before. Ive been goin to the toilet a few times a day(not like me at all) and was also sick really bad yesterday morning! Today im feeling so swollen down there and the inside of the top of my legs are so sore i have bad lower backache and a terrible headache! The bottom of my bump seems really sore and ive been havin quite regular braxton hicks...
Does anyone know if this means im likely to go into labour soon or wishful thinking?
Sorry for the long post hahablush thanks in advance smile

I've been having these symptoms for about six weeks, and I'm now nearly a week overdue! Sorry, but there's no way of knowing until it actually kicks off. Hopefully s/he is going to hold on a little longer though as that's a bit early for them to turn up!

Yes, sorry, I'm 39+6, been engaged since 38 and Brixton hicks (sometimes painful) since before then. I think I've got another another week in me. Alas, until you're in labour you're just not!
