Got questions about giving birth? Know what to expect and when to expect it, with the Mumsnet Pregnancy Calendar.

I'm a third timer - you would think I would know if I'm in labour or not wouldn't you?

Am 39+6 weeks with DD3. Been up since 2.15am with BHs pains, they are about every 5 mins only lasting say a minute tops. When they start I get a lot of pressure in my bum then right down across my pelvis.

With my other two waters broke first time and second time there was no doubt as I was screaming from the off. DD1 was 4h 20m, DD2 2h 30m.

This is so annoying if it's another false alarm (been getting loads of BHs) I will be so peeved off. Surely BHs would have eased off in nearly 3 hours they usually do.

Am having a homebirth DP is upstairs asleep, don't want to wake my childcare either or midwife if false alarm.

False alarm

oh, feel for you, there is nothing worse, but on the good side all those bh are probably doing something, to make the actual event easier(not that you need it to be shortergrin)

Not even my due date until tomorrow could have another 2 weeks of this, can't go anywhere as can't walk due to the bloody SPD, oh pregnancy sucks sometimes.

Well with my third i made it all the way to hospital telling everyone my waters had broken - they had not. Felt very stupid.

Good luck

Pains still 5 mins apart have phoned MW and she's coming to see me soon am hoping she will give me a sweep and maybe hurry things up. If she tells me my cervix is closed I will burst into tears.
