Hi, I'm 32+2 and have had (what I think are) braxton hicks today as well as a massive increase in the babies' movements. No other symptoms - apart from the usual pelvic aches. If you had twins, when did you go into labour and is what I'm going through normal or should I be phoning the labour ward? Eek!
Has your bump dropped? Is baby one already engaged? Is it possible that is what is happening? You might wake up tomorrow and find a dropped bump! I read a thread like this recently andt hats exactly what happened. X
If in doubt phone the labour ward, they will be able to help you more than we will. I had my dts at 30 weeks, my waters went and I went in to labour shortly after. I had lots of aches and pains before then, lots of people I know had bh up until they had them, so it could be nothing, best to speak to a MW anyway, just to be on the safe side.
Hi scenic! <waves> How do you know if it drops? Is the bump physically lower? Had a scan on Thursday and both babies are transverse. Can't get over how much movement there is tonight. Eek! How are you doing? x
Have you had a busy day? BH always got worse for me when I was especially busy or active, from about 28 weeks. Thinking about it, the girls always moved more too. I can't help too much with the signs of labour, I was taken in to be induced at 37+3, got cramps within minutes of the pessery going in, lost the pessery when my waters broke and they were both out 6 hours later!
Hi OP would agree with Nicknack that I would get more BH when busy/knakcered. I was basically on sofa rest as much as poss from about this time. Always worth phoning labour ward with twins if you're worried - Mine weren't transverse either. Best of luck to you
Hi, how are you today? Agree with pp any changes in movement should be checked out, there is a good chance they were moving to a head down while they still have some room but still best getting checked out. I had mine at 36+2 after my waters went I went into labour a few hrs later and babies arrived about 8 hrs after my waters had gone. When's your next scan?
Glad you all OK. I had pains on and off from 6 months onwards. Waters went at 33 and had emcs as twin 1 breach. If ever you not sure ring labour ward, if you're really worried don't let them fob you off, just turn up and insist you checked out. Here's wishing you all the best x
