37.5 weeks and keep thinking it's starting, when in fact...

I just need a big poo!! blush With my DS I was horribly constipated and when I actually did go into labour at first it felt like 'poo pains'. This time round I don't seem to be anywhere near as constipated but I don't tend to get the urge to go but keep getting 'poo pains' that are really quite painful! Today I've been 3 times and had huge ones! What's that all about then?!

Oh the glamour... hmm

I hear you... Spent two hours in a horrific traffic jam in London, on the front passenger seat on my knees leaning over the headrest at 38 weeks, breathing through "contractions".' Got home, did a massive poo. Baby born two weeks later!

...but equally pooing lots can be the start of labour..
