Early labour?

I'm 36+2 with my second (DS was induced then ended in emcs at 42+1) .

I've had really bad cramping since about 6pm, like really bad period pains in my lower back and down below, I've been to the toilet about 7 times since then (number 2s).

About 9pm I leaked a white/yellowy gloopy stuff when I wiped, unsure wether it's part of my mucus plug as there was no streaks of blood in it, only way I can describe it is looking a bit like sperm but with a yellow tinge to it.

Ever since about 7pm I haven't been able to feel my right thigh, it's completely dead no matter what position I try to sit/stand in, I layed in the bath for about an hour to try easing it but I still can't feel it, dunno what that's all about.

My mother and sister are away for the weekend, sister is meant to be on standby to come here and stay with DS when I go in and my mother was coming with me to the hospital (DP too obviously) but I would have liked her there. I'm so nervous!

Forgot to add, every time I've wiped since I've had some more white stuff but not as much as the first time, and when I just wiped just now there was a pink time to the paper. Sorry tmi

You should really phone your mw before 37 weeks. The cramping could be an upset stomach or the start of labour but it's best to get a professional opinion smile

How are you feeling today Hun?

Best to ask midwife or delivery suite advice to be in safe safe. My first was born at 35 weeks and started a bit like this minus the numb feeling though.

Good luck huni, if in doubt ask xxxx

Thanks guys I'm feeling a little better, not in as much pain as last night but still have the cramping in lower back and just been to the toilet again, exhausted cos I was up most of the night so DP has just taken DS to his mothers for a few hours while he's at work, gonna try get some rest and will ring midwives if I feel any worst, don't wanna ring for the sake of it cos I feel like I'm wasting their time X

That's what there there for Hun don't feel like you can't. If in doubt ask Hun. Resting is a good idea huni and keep a little track in baby movements. I'm sure all is fine and your body is just preparing. Good luck lovey xx

FGS, just ring them. This is the health of your baby at risk, who cares if it turns out that it's nothing! At least you'll know. This has been what, almost 24 hours feeling ill with labour like symptoms?
