I am 38 weeks today and have been having some labour symptoms. I am getting pains in pubic bone, lower abdomen, lower back. Sometimes these feel like dragging pains other times like very big twinges/period pain which can last for anything from a few seconds to four-five hours. Over the last week there have been three seperate days where I have wondered is this the beginning, have taken some paracetamol but nothinghas developed.
I have been getting intense tightenings around all of my bump, but these are not very painful, just feel odd and uncomfortable. This seems tobe especially happening when I am walking about or stand up.
I get a pushing feeling in all of my pelvis/hips/pubic bone from time to time as well, caused by baby but is very uncomfortable.
I have been needing to go to the loo for bowel movements at least three times a day for the last two days and I have been having massive mood swings from getting angry to up set to scared. I have had full tummy jitters (PMT-feelings best way to decribe it)for no reason at all.
Does any of this mean baby is coming sooner rather than later?? I really want to have this baby now.
