Hi, I've noticed the front of my bump being tighter and more uncomfortable over the last 2 days or so (actively tightening, if that makes sense!). Now tonight I've got cramps in my lower back and in to my a dull, constant ache.

The baby's head is nowhere close to being engaged, so this is unlikely to be labour, isn't it? ISN'T IT?!!

I never had Braxton Hicks with my first pg - or didn't notice any - so does this sound like a warm-up to you, rather than early rumblings of labour?

I am 31 weeks and having bad back cramps tonight so much so think im going to go to bed - no 2 can engage whilst in labour so may well be the start of it - I have never had braxton hicks either.. my 2 labour was very different to my 1st - good luck smile

Sorry thought I read u were 38 weeks .. At 34 weeks more likely Braxton hicks .. Think mine are .. Hope they pass
