i never had anything with my last DC but yesterday and today i have been getting some almighty pains across my bump. It all goes tense for about a minute and then seems to relax - are these braxton hicks? they are really uncomfortable and i feel like i'm going to pop!!

How many weeks are you? I'm 35 and can't walk anywhere without them kicking in. I think it's a good sign!

34 and a bit - am expected to go into labour any time though due to some problems, so i wasnt sure!
good luck!

My braxton hicks were more or less painful according to where the baby was - when she was back to back they were agony!

get the midwife to tell you how to encourage the baby to turn - mine didn't bother as was having a c-section. It was only after dd turned round of her own accord that I realised how much difference it would make!

i will do, thanks. DD was back to back, not pleasant. not sure on how this one is being delivered at this stage but dont fancy another back to back-er!!
