Labour or IBS?

Am 38+4 weeks and had a sweep yesterday (really bad SPD the cause). Have had abdominal pains but am now on so many drugs that have no idea if i am coming or going. Could it be IBS (that is what i think it is) or could i be in labour? I was induced last time so have no idea what going into labour normally feels like. Any experience of this would be VERY welcome.

PS I don't think i would notice lower back pain with the labour as this is where most of the SPD is centred.

Hi Clutter

Hope it was labour and that you now have a baby. If not, I'm not sure what IBS feels like but my contractions felt just like period pains to begin with - perhaps the SPD would also mask this.

Good luck!
