I am currently 37+2 with my 2nd baby & am geting very fed up.
Have been desperate to reach the 37 week mark as baby tried to come at 33+0 which thankfully the MW's were able to stop happening with a drip.
Anyway.....for the past 4 nights/early morning I have been getting what feels like mild(ish) contractions. They are in the same place I felt them with my DD although this time they are creeping round my back too (didn't get that with DD) - they aren't agony but painful enough to make me sit up & take notice & occassionly have to breath through.
Trouble is they keep stopping
Am I going to go on like this for weeks??
Anyone had this??
At my last appt baby was 3/5ths IN but I think he has moved down again as I have so much pressure in my bum & lady bits - it's been so much at times I could barely sit down.
Felt very uncomfortable & restless yesterday.
Am sooooooooooooo exhasuted through lack of sleep wondering how much longer this will be going on for!!
went on for two weeks with me. and for the second week i was producing enough of a show to convince me i was about to pop at any second. in fact, we were away and i even rang the local hospital and asked if they could deliver me if i went into labour in a hurry! didn't happen - my waters went 12 hours after i got home! good luck!
Hello again MrsMagoo. We're in the same boat. I'm 38+4 (on third baby) and am getting "contractions" at night. Gagh.
Fingers crossed for the full moon tonight/ tomorrow.
FWIW, when I was overdue on DD2 and had had about 4 sweeps and still had an "unfavourable" cervix, I did go into labour spontaneously and have the baby in a few hours. That stuff they write on your notes - it's helpful, but it doesn't tell the whole story. Just because you're not fully engaged, doesn't mean you're absolutely not going to go into labour.
