Been going on since yday and getting worse, I know I'm getting tightening but I really am unsure of what's going on. It really hurts and goes dull. I can feel it in my thighs. Any one had this? Was it beginnings of labour.

Sounds like labour!

My early contractions felt like bad period pains! Good luck x

Janek Fri 17-Jun-16 15:37:03

PatMullins Fri 17-Jun-16 15:37:53

Yeah period pains usually are the start
Good luck smile

Ooo sounds like labour. Call maternity triage. Good luck

why don't you think it's labour? (we REALLY need a knitting emoticon)

AbsolutelyIDo Fri 17-Jun-16 18:29:43

Ah OP, that does sound a lot like labour. How are you doing?

Yep! Definitely sounds like labour! smile

My labour strated with increasing 'period pains' and then pains down both thighs!
Good luck if it's the start!

Ooo birth thread!

Sounds like start of labour

Definitely labour, I had a wee heat pack on my tummy at the start (was induced) then switched to "breathing", then gas and air, boom, done. Heat pack to baby in 5 short hours.

Still in pain, called birth centre, they want me to wait till it gets worse before I come in but abit of plug has come out now so hopefully I wont drag out for too long!!

Is it toe-curling yet? <knit knit>

Jodie1982 Fri 17-Jun-16 21:29:08

Good luck. When you get further along you'll probably forget to post on here as your mind will be busy with the contractions.
Hope you have an easy birth experience flowers

Good luck - I'm mega jealous. I'm 38+4 and desperate to go into labour before I'm induced at 39+6!

Good luck op.

Afreshstartplease Sat 18-Jun-16 08:58:36

Wonder if op is snuggling her baby yet!

Fingers crossed this will be me in 16 weeks!

Mimilicious013 Sat 18-Jun-16 10:27:17

It's always nicer to have baby early than late. So fx you will be lucky too afresh

Afreshstartplease Sat 18-Jun-16 10:30:24

Hope so! Closet I've ever got to due date was 39+4 so I'm hopeful!
