Im 39+2 today and for about 5/6 days have had 2 hours or so of regular braxton hicks between 10pm and midnight.
Obviously this has been getting my hopes up and i've been expecting to havbe my baby pretty soon.
Tonight I started having braxton hicks/contractions around 5pm they started regular every 10-12 mins then faded off for a while and are now back regular every 6-7 mins and are more intense. I can talk through them though.
I'll get to the point now I plan on using a tens machine for this labour and have read it should be used from the very beginning or wont be effective. My question is how do I know if this is labour or not and weather to use it?
been to the loo twice now and they are still coming every 6 minutes so different from the rest of this week. I have the tens on now and it feels nice and relaxing whilst not having contractions im quite confused by all the settings on it though lol
hi not sure if any of you ladies are still watching this thread, but sat bouncing on my gym ball with tens on contractions every 3 mins for last hour going to call hospital soon quite reluctant after suddenly stopping last week
