I didn't have much with my first but I had loads of pains and BH with my second from about 36 weeks. I think you do often get a lot more niggles second time. Fingers crossed though. A week or two early would be nice wouldn't it?
Can you feel the baby engaged, I've got a midwife app on Monday so I'm sure she will check, but this last week I've felt very heavy down below need a wee all the time, and when I get up I feel pressure down below. Been getting lots of twinges. Im36 weeks and this is my first
Sweetpea, I feel heavy low & can definitely tell I've dropped. I got so.e period pains the week before my appointment, MW seemed shocked I was engaged so soon. A student MW did the feel, then got my normal MW to confirm it & said "I'm not surprised you've had pains, heads fully engaged!" They struggled to find heartbeat with that trumpet thing cos he's so low, they've got to put the trumpet directly over the heart to hear & that's also low. I do need to pee all the time!
