Annoying post alert
I've been having "tightenings/contractions" (not sure as I've not had any BH as of yet, I'm 39+4)
I'm timing them to about 1 every 15 mins, lasting about 30 seconds.
I'm not sure what I should be feeling but sort of feels like when you have a bad curry and you get the cramps and feel like you need to shit yourself! Eases off though....
Accompanied by back ache.
Could this be it?? I couldn't walk yesterday due to her being so low in the pelvis.
Definitely sounds like you body is getting ready but this can go on for a well over a week of stop start contraction. Do whatever your body tells you in terms of eating, sleeping and going out the house. If you want to speed it up put on a lovely film that you enjoy, keep the curtains drawn and bounce on your birthing ball all day.
