My first labour started that way, I think around lunchtime. By 5pm it was obvious I was in labour but a friend had similar which went on for days - think key is if regular and getting stronger then labour likely to be imminent, if more on/off niggly you might have longer to go.
Either way at 36 weeks you should be OK so try and rest / relax and see what happens. Good luck!
Call your MW Hun, especially if they're regular. Sounds like early Labour pains. (Im going to b doing it for 5th time very soon so speaking from experience here!) good luck. Try n update us if possible.
Pack your bag and call the mw for reassurance. They may want you to go in as you're slightly early. Don't panic though all will be well- my labour started like this though took a few hours for me to realise.
So i started getting contractions about 2 hours ago, called triage and they said to take 2 paracetamol and see how it goes. They were coming really close together they've eased off again now for the moment. I'm hoping it's a false alarm, i didn't realise how unprepared I am.
Triage said to phone if they start up again, guess it's just a waiting game now.
I now have a hospital bag though! And my sister is going to get the car seat today for me.
Was NOT expecting this when i woke up this morning!
