Am nearly 34 weeks but have a history of premature labours, so looks like things might be happening here. Scared now. My back is contantly aching and having contractions every 10 minutes. Going to have a bath and hope it eases off

Good luck, SGK. <crosses fingers>

thanks, can't get in the bath yet, as DH has gone to get my diabetes presc. and I am not allowed in the bath when no-one is here.

The pains are lasting about 1 min. I can't remember how long they should last for proper labour

After your bath, get a nice drink and take yourself back to bed and get some rest.

I will phone the hospital after my bath, have had a few false alarms already.

had the steriod injections at 28 weeks. The consultant thought that even if I wasn't in labour at 28 weeks, then it would be a good idea, so had them done already

Fingers crossed for you, sgk.

Oh how exciting!!!

Is Lisad home from hosp yet?

My mum & aunt both had children 4 hours apart & their beds were wheeled next to each other! They got a shock when they saw one another!

Milky drink to line stomach, ham sandwich, recline on sofa with hello and remote control, towel under neather regions and phone to hand.

As soon as I know if this is IT, I have to go in, as I need for group B strep. hmm Taken paracetamol, see if that stops it. About to have a bath.

Oh SGK, thinking of you and hope everything goes well if this is it.

One minute sounds about right. Are they getting closer together?

big hugs xx
