Was nicely asleep in bed to be woken up by what i would call mild period pain. All day i have been getting pressure down below and its stopped me in my tracks a few times today. Nothing else now i have been woken with this mild period pain. Im 38+4 now. Hate all this start stop stuff.
I reckon it's your body preparing you for a nice and easy labour. I had this for a few days before dc3 and had a fab and fast labour. The longer it goes on for the better your birth. Enjoy it! (although I know you can't, it drove me mad, I went 6 days over!)
