Stay active, go for big long walks / waddles inbetween naps. At 37+2 DS was small (6lb) so didn’t have as much oomph to come out so it took a looooong time. I really think moving about more would have helped.
I had period type pains and felt there was a lot going on inside, I also had a clear out as they say and did have a bit of diarrhoea, and I was leaking water with pink blood n that was a day before my waters broke fully and my contractions started, try stay calm though and just let it all happen naturally. Good luck x
Nothing's happening just yet I really thought it was the beginning of something but they went as quickly as they came. however similar pains are back again tonight and I'm also feeling rather restless and uncomfortable. I did have a bit of a "clear out" yesterday which I didn't think anything of until reading your comments. Thanks all, will keep updated x
