Early signs???

Hey everyone. Just wondering if anyone can help me out. I've called triage and they said it can either be early labour or just baby pressuring my bowels.

I'm not too worried but I guess if it is likely to happen it'd be good to be prepared!

The night before last I was getting a lot of pressure (like I needed a poo) and braxton hicks, so much so that I needed to have a bath. Yesterday however, it all stopped.

Early hours this morning the pressure started again and I felt very much like I needed a poo, I've been trying all day and it happened this morning but didn't provide any relief and then I've just managed to do another (sorry if this is TMI!) and still no relief. If anything the pain is getting worse. Having braxton hicks every so often but no pattern.

I am 36 weeks..... a friend says this is exactly how her labour started and others have said perhaps I just have a bad stomach.

Any thoughts?? Thanks xx

Oh and I am pretty sure my plug has gone too.
