I was due 11th August, this is my 3rd baby. First was 10 days late (emergency c-section, 9lb 3), second was 1 day early, v-teuse, perenical cut, 8lb 3). I woke up at 2am feeling like i was having those pains before a bout of runny poo, had a pee and bam, started having contractions. Stayed in bed till 4am and have been up the last hour drinking tea and eating toast, and sitting on my ball at pc. They have been coming every 10 mins since 2am and don't seem to be getting any longer/intense - should i go back to bed?

Hope this is it for you. You should try and sleep if you can to keep your energy up for later on, have you had a little snack? What about having a bath or a walk round the block? The gravity will help it all open up. Good luck,

If you've got your childcare sorted, I'd go back to bed. Did you?
