All day had braxton hicks, baby feels as though they've been moving from transverse to up/down position (not sure head down or breech) and this evening a real tightening of muscles at the top of my abdomen, under my ribs. All fairly standard for 36+2.

but also this evening I've felt very cold and shivery. don't think it's a cold weather thing. just my body all jittery. just wondering if anyone had that at the start of their labour (as I've not come across it in any of the classes/books etc)

I've seen it listed as a sign of early labour on some websites - I think it's called labour shakes?

Good luck OP!
