Hi... has anyone had or does anyone get really a sore stomache, almost like period pains/constipation feeling?? For past 2 days i've had terrible crampy pains in tummy, and when i sat down it feels like someone is shoving a melon up my arse... sorry tmi but its really uncomfortable, been woken up a few times during night with it too.

Thing is i'm not constipated at all and altho i am getting tightenings with this i don't have a clue whats going on. Did wonder last night if it was a pre labour thing but still exact same this am. My last 2 labours were clear cut (37 and 38 weeks)- waters broke, contractions started and a few hours later out came baby. Now i'm almost 40 weeks and this! Any suggestions what it could be... wondering if the melon feeling is just the head as its very low, has been only 1/5 palpable for over a week.

Sorry so long! x

Well if you are 40 weeks then it's quite possible that you are in pre-labour smile

It's been a long time since I had my children so I can't recall much detail.

Good luck and I shall look forward to a Birth Announcement from you soon.
