Late pregnancy symptom spotting!

I am driving myself mad by symptom spotting early labour signs (I'm only 36+3 with DC2) Its almost as bad as the 2ww. I had an upset tummy the other day, which turned out to be... An upset tummy. All better now. Right now I'm having spasm-y pains in my back, and am having to remind myself that I slept uncomfortably and anyway backache is perfectly normal in late pregnancy. I don't even want to go into labour yet, I'm not full term plus the crib hasn't been delivered and the car seat and carrycot covers need washed and aired grin Please tell me I'm not alone in my madness...

Nah course you're not alone!! smile

I've had all the same things as you in the past few weeks, including reminding myself the 'signs' are not bloody signs, they are what they are. Indigestion, the plops, a burp, backache, crease lines on your bump from bed sheets (OW).

Also I get you when you say you don't want to be in labour (aside from the bit too early anyways) but you kinda DO want to be in labour. No, I don't want to be in pain...but...I DO!

Sorry, the crease lines from bedsheets making for a painful bump is what I meant.
