Hi I'm 39+4 weeks pregnant and I'm wondering if I'm having early signs on labour since 6:15pm last night I had diarrhoea and have been about 5 times today and was awake most of last night Peeing and had backache, I can feel a lot of pressure but haven't had any contractions, I've tried everything to start labour myself but nothing has worked, I've tried curry, walking, dancing, bouncing on my ball, yoga and nothing raspberry leaf tea also didn't work... So if these are early signs when will labour actually start?? Hope you can help guys thanks smile

Hello it could be, in my last pregnancy I had a migraine then a Show then things kicked off.
Try nipple stimulation to get things going, I've heard it works!! Good luck grin

I tried nipple stimulation and that didn't work either, I'm awake now at 2:22am with backache.... What's going on sad

I have no advice as I'm only 31 weeks with my first, but it all sounds like things might be moving for you, hope you don't have too long to wait!

39+4 with number 2 also and I'm really sorry to tell you but I've been like that for weeks now....currently in the bath trying to ease the back ache! Also had 2 unsuccessful sweeps as baby not engaged and cervix still closed so doesn't look like he's ready any time soon either!

Hope it's different for you and you have your little one in your arms soon!

also i started having a little pelvic pain that has gotten worse through out the night and also when I went pee every 10 minutes when I was done I didn't need to pee anymore when I wiped I looked at the toilet paper and it was were and later on towards about 1am this morning after I wiped it looked watery like liquid sitting on the toilet paper but I looked in the toilet and my pee is clear no foul smell and I don't think my water is leaking because my underwear is dry what do u think is happening?

Winny1984 Sun 22-May-16 13:50:38

this is my first pregnancy and have read some books about pregnancy and labor but it says if your water is leaking it won stop like I'm peeing and can't stop but I do stop peeing and my underwear is staying dry

does anyone have any advice? my baby was up in my ribs for a long time but in the last day I don't feel him moving around my ribs before he was really active moving all over all the time all day and night but in the last week or less he is still active but just not moving all around and flipping everywhere he still moves but now it just feels like strong punches and kicks

Hi Winny if you are concerned call Labour ward and they'll suggest you go in for monitoring. Your tiredness could be anemia?? Ask your mw for a blood test x
