I'm just after a bit of symptom spotting company. I'm 37+2. First baby came at 38 weeks, second at 39+1.
So I'm wondering if I'm gearing up for labour... it's been 5 and a half years since last time so I'm a bit foggy on the details of last time! But in the past couple of days I've had diarrhoea (sorry if TMI!), a couple of times a day I get, long-lasting, extremely tight feelings around bump, backache, increased PGP pain, fanny daggers (!!) started 24 hours ago... nipples seem to be on fire for no apparent reason and I'm feeling sick as a dog. No bloody show yet, no waters broken.
Please tell me all this means it's imminent rather than par for the course for the next few weeks?
If you're on the home stretch too, fancy keeping me company while I ponder and guess?
I hope things happen quickly for you. I'm 37 + 2 too, first baby here. I've had diarroeah for 2 days too and generally feeling a bit unwell but other than the odd twinge no other signs things might be imminent 😢 I promised myself I wouldn't over think things and would enjoy the last few weeks of my pregnancy but that feeling is quickly fading! Good luck and keep us posted
40+4 here and over it. I had a sweep on Tuesday but my score was 3, cervix 2cm dilated but still posterior. Yesterday I had a show and lots of plug loss. Had period pains and irregular tightenings but nothing has come of them. I'm hoping things ramp up today.
Hi, I've had similar symptoms (39 weeks today and scheduled for induction tomorrow!) I've been having the symptoms for over a week and still no signs of this baby making a natural appearance! I really hope that things move along for you, good luck x
thanks for the company guys! Still nowt happening for real. But I'm getting crampy tightenings now, on a fairly regular basis. I also had a bizarre episode this afternoon where I emptied out (ahem) very completely. I am on codeine which usually causes constipation so to say it was a surprise is an understatement. Felt like I'd had an enema! Apparently this is possibly pre-labour and fairly common? Anyone else doing lots of poop?? Sorry for TMI!
I have a rotten headache too, and I feel miserable tbh. I just want to kick things off and get on with it now. DP lives 80 miles away (long story, previous kids from earlier relationships on both sides, not possible to combine houses full time yet, unplanned baby). So I asked him to come down tonight and stay as I'm so niggly. Whether baby comes or not I am over being by myself.
I was doing loads of poops (TMI!!!) the last few days. Now I just feel like shit. I’m exhausted, having random tightening of my bump. More pelvic pain (but I’ve had that for two weeks now). It’s my first, I’m 37+6 and I’m already over being pregnant. They may induce me next Thursday for slow growth, and I’m actually hoping they do! I’m just ready to get this started. I’d be 38+4 if they do it next week, feel like thats close enough to my due date!
