I'm 38 weeks with baby #1 and have been experiencing a very tight stomach along with backache/pains for the last couple days. I have never had period pains so don't really know what to expect when it comes to contractions, plus my mum and man both never had obvious signs of labour besides their waters breaking so really need some guidance on whether I'm in labour or not. Has anyone else had laidback labours?
I didn't notice I was in labour until my contractions we're about 5 minutes apart and too intense to let me sleep. I just thought my BH were getting worse and Used them to practice my breathing. (Which is probably in part why they were manageable.)
I'm glad I didn't know. It would only have made labour longer and harder.
