I think this baby might be trying to work its way out.
I'm 39 +6 weeks.
I woke up about an hour ago with some pains. The pains are coming every 6-2 minutes lasting around a minute. They are manageable. I've had a couple of paracetamol and I'm swaying around the kitchen.
Trying to be quiet as I don't want to wake anyone up just yet as this could all stop.

Good luck! Give your labour ward a ring (if you're planning a hospital birth) so they know to expect you shortly.

Oh best of luck. Really wishing you well .. Probably be the morning but I'd ring the ward just to talk

I've just popped my tens machine on. That was hard work, I've no idea if the pads are in the right place but it seems to be helping.
Sat on my ball watching eastenders, I don't think I'd be able to get back to sleep now.

How exciting- good luck!!

I'm going to give it another 10 mins then wake the other half up. Things haven't slowed down at all. Contractions every 2-4 mins lasting around a minute.

Oh wow!
There'll be a baby here very soon!

Good luck!

Good luck!

One-minute long contractions every 2 to 4 minutes? What on earth are you waiting for? Get yourself to the hospital (or get medical help to you if a home birth) right away.

Best wishes for a safe, healthy, boring delivery.

they don't feel painful enough to go to hospital yet. Only just started breathing through them.
Partner is awake, running around like a mad man and I've just rung my mum and asked her to come round.

Ooh how exciting! Is it your first baby? A subsequent one?

WellThisIsShit Wed 15-Nov-17 04:49:34

Ooh good luck!

Milliemoo37 Wed 15-Nov-17 05:33:39

Good luck! It's probably all going on right now grin

Hope that all is going well op

CakesRUs Wed 15-Nov-17 16:22:33

I wonder if she’s had him/her yet??

PeppermintNightmare Mon 20-Nov-17 21:57:41

Sorry for the late reply.
He was born at 8am on Wednesday.
We managed a natural delivery using only the tens machine. It was really intense but so glad to have avoided any complications.
