Wondering if someone could share their thoughts with me!!
I'm 38 weeks +4days, for the past 24 hours I've had period like cramping in my stomach and back. They've become slightly more painful but then ease off a little, not completely gone though.
I can't really tell whether i'm contracting or when, if I am it may be irregular or i'm just not picking it up every contraction.
I recently went to have a wee and noticed a very pink tinge on the paper when wiping along with some pink tinged wee in the toilet which i'm guessing is blood. I'm having a bit of lightening pain and the urge to (tmi) poo, gone once & it's soft but not runny. Could this be labour? Really really unsure, I've not called the hospital yet as I've not had any regular contractions (I think) or waters.

It could be the start but once you start having contractions trust me you'll know lol.

@feministmyarse i'm unsure as with my first I didn't realise, and when I did I gave birth pretty quick from that moment. Was also induced, so don't know what to expect this time naturally.

Are the pains getting stronger?

@iwanttoshakesomeppl slightly, they will linger for a while. They aren't increasingly getting stronger atm but haven't shifted at all just occasionally ease for a few minutes
