In 34 weeks and I've been up all night weeing ! I've got period type pains, sore bump and pressure in my bum. Does that sound normal? The cramping is every 6 mins or so and at the front

That sounds suspicious...I'd definitely be giving your midwife a call

FluffyFlowerFace Sat 14-Oct-17 11:39:09

It eases off I'm hoping it's Braxton hicks. My bump hasn't dropped and I've had no mucus plug loss and no back pain

ScotsLamb Sat 14-Oct-17 11:48:03

I would call the midwife too.

FluffyFlowerFace Sat 14-Oct-17 12:04:36

I've left a message on their answer machine

Sounds like your body practicing 😀 you will know if it's contractions. grin

FluffyFlowerFace Sat 14-Oct-17 12:09:00

Phoned them they said it sounds like Braxton hicksblush

FluffyFlowerFace Sat 14-Oct-17 12:14:13

If I'm finding these painful I don't think I'll do well in labour

Ilovechocolate111 Sat 14-Oct-17 12:18:06

You'll be fine. Everyone says that lol.. I always think the pain was worth it in the end xx

OP please dont worry yourself about labour, when I was pregnant with my son, I found BH way more painful than the real thing.

FluffyFlowerFace Sat 14-Oct-17 19:44:32

They were not braxtons they were labour

FuckMyUterus Sat 14-Oct-17 20:07:47

Oh, congratulations! Have you had the baby then or still in labour?brew

ChocolatePancake Sat 14-Oct-17 20:12:29

I was just about to say I'd definitely go and make them see you because it sounds like labour and then I read your last message! Congratulations! Is all well?

FluffyFlowerFace Sat 14-Oct-17 20:17:28

Got to hospital at 15.15 8cm dilated boy born at 18.18 he's ok in an incubator xx

Sunshinegirl82 Sat 14-Oct-17 20:18:48

Must all be a bit of a shock OP given that you thought you had quite a few weeks to go. How is baby getting on?

Sunshinegirl82 Sat 14-Oct-17 20:21:33

Cross post. Glad to hear baby is doing well, look after yourself.

Roseandbee Sat 14-Oct-17 20:28:33

Congratulations! Glad he's doing oksmile Well no wonder you found them painful! If you get a chance I'd be curious to hear at what point you realised it was really labour?

FluffyFlowerFace Sat 14-Oct-17 20:33:00

When I got to thr hospital rose honestly I was 8cm and didn't know!

Ohwell14 Sat 14-Oct-17 20:34:55

Sounds like you did a lot better with the pain of labour than you though you would xx i was crying my eyes out when i was 2cm dialated blush
Congratulations x

Well done and congrats. I’d be really miffed they didn’t take you more seriously but you did amazing.

ChocolatePancake Sat 14-Oct-17 21:16:00

It sounds like you did amazing. Not many women can post when in labour! I'm glad he's doing okay. I know this isn't what you had planned but things will work out, and you have a tiny little early eager beaver to look forward to taking home for cuddles!! flowers

InThisTogether Sat 14-Oct-17 21:16:49

Ooh well done OP x
Glad he and you are doing well x x

ScotsLamb Sat 14-Oct-17 21:24:26

Amazing! Have you told your midwife it wasn't braxton hicks?

You were right to be concerned about the pain level then. Well done x

FluffyFlowerFace Sun 15-Oct-17 11:05:27

Yep trust instincts ladies. I'm awaiting a review from medical team to find out what happened but he seems ok. Out of incubator and passed hearing test x

crazypenguinlady Sun 15-Oct-17 11:08:44

Congrats on your baby boy! Well done on getting through most of labour without realising smile
