40+1 am I in early labour?

I'm a first time mum and I'm worried I'm missing the signs. I've been feeling the urge to go to the toilet every hour or so for the last 24 hours, and woke up this morning to what I assume was my show. Every 20 minutes or so I've been having a dull ache in my lower back since then, but now this appears to be intensifying and coming more frequently. The only pains I've felt across my belly have been lower down like period pains, but I'm not sure if they're Braxton hicks or not. I'm just so confused!

Sounds promising to me, good luck!

Definitely sounds like it to me! My labour was all back pain and period type pains, never got any 'tightenings' in my bump or anything.

Oh well that's scary! The pain is definitely more frequent and uncomfortable! Thanks guys!
