Oh yes, the 'poo pain', I remember it well. Spent hours trying to go to the loo before I realised what it was grin Ring the midwife / hospital Natalie and good luck, sounds like it's happening!

could be start of it. if you are feeling unwell too call the MW

if it is the start of labour, you would be better of at home, in the bath, relaxing and resting, if all is well

make syre you are eating and drinking

they feel like period pains, but worse, and in waves that come and go in their intensity.

CuckooClockWiseCrack Wed 30-Jul-08 18:18:05

OH yes, I also thought I need to do a poo, for about 2 hours..... it never showed up though.

Natalie1984 Wed 30-Jul-08 18:46:23

lol rang midwife she seems to think everythings ok, going 4 a bath guess time will tell grin

DorrisMcWhirter Wed 30-Jul-08 19:40:35

I know this is now a bit late as you are probably in the bath already, but, a cautionary tale....
When going for the prescribed bath do not get stuck.
Furthermore, do not decide the only way to get out is to drain all the water out first.
This will lead to you having to be hauled out in a very undignified fashion by DP / passing helpful person and then carted off to hospital in a state.
