Hi Ladies... I'm only 33+2 so really hope DS isn't making an early appearance as I have nothing ready yet!! Yesterday and this morning I have been having some crampy, period type pains, lower back ache and sore hips. There doesn't seem to be a pattern though and they are lasting for about 20 minutes... so doesn't seem like contractions to me (although this is my first so I really have no idea!). I'm having a few tightenings as well but they don't seem to be connected to the other symptoms.
