Regular tightenings for a couple of hours...

As title says......been getting pretty regular tightenings for 2 hours or so. Haven't been timing as haven't thought much of them but I'd guesstimate every 10 minutes or so, and they are now happening with a bit more discomfort than braxton hicks I've had previously. Don't know whether it is something or nothing confused. Difficult to judge by pain level as my last labour, the pain was very manageable right up to the end. I was very lucky!

I'm 38+2 and hoping this is at least body gearing up!

oh sounds like it might be the start of things. Time the next few and get ready to be calling the midwife. Did you go over/early with your last baby? good luck, hope you have your baby soon flowers
