So I'm 40+1 and had a sweep at about midday today. MW said my cervix was still long but 3cm dilated. I've been having really strong braxton hicks since, every couple of minutes. Bump goes very tight and I can feel masses of pressure low low down and I feel like I need the loo.
Ooh good luck op! Is this your first? I was not convinced I was in labour until I was crying and couldn't lie down, sit down, stand without feeling like I was dying! I'd been in early long first stages for about 36 hours at that point!
