Am 39+3 today by their dates or 40+4 by my lmp dates.
My first three labours started with the waters breaking way past 41 weeks.
Have been having fairly regular and strong braxton hicks for the last two days on and off, in bouts of a few hours. Can hardly walk today without being out of breath and in pain. Feel a lot better sitting on the loo.
Any outside chance of this being standard early labour? Or am I doomed to go to 14 overdue and then start with waters breaking.
Third DS - labour was like this. On and off for a couple of days, few hours at a time. Then on day 3 intensified for an hour, stopped for 2 hours, then all on. Good thing was final labour reasonably fast.
I really sympathise with you as this is very tiring, do you have some help with others? Please try and rest (you know the drill). Hope it all happens soon.
