I'm 40+6 and have been having period type cramps for the past couple of days which get worse at night. This morning I had a very small amount of blood (phoned the hospital and they said it's due to the change in the cervix). Has anyone else had this? It can be quite uncomfortable. Is it a sign of the onset of labour or am I just being hopeful?
sounds promising - bit of blood could be your mucus plug from your cervix, so it's ready to start opening up, labour will be when the cramps will build in intensity and last a few minutes (prob different for everyone). Guessing this is your first as (like me) you don't really know what to expect!
