As title says, I'm due today and things don't seem to be going to the textbook! I've been having really frequent and often quite intense BH for about 4 days, mainly during the night and some infrequent backache. During the days, a bit less. My midwife thought I might be in slow labour/latent phase. Woke up this morning and did need to pee but definitely had a leak which I'm pretty sure wasn't wee as it wasn't the lovely pregnacare stained/smelling stuff I've had the last 9 months. 2 or 3 BH today and a bit of backpain - bouncing on the ball was too painful as was trying to do naughties with DH. Bump very very sore. The midwife is going to call me later and says things are looking positive but I'm not having contractions, I feel completely normal other than a bit sick. Baby still moving but is def taking things easier today. Movements are far more painful though. What's going on?
What's also really worrying me is that it's all psychosomatic as I obviously really want the baby to come. I've also been hitting the EPO, clary sage, RLT the last few weeks so could all my symptoms have been false and self-induced? I've also exercised every day of my pregnancy so don't often feel aches and pains etc. Any experiences or advice? Thanks!
Have been having strong BH since a sweep on friday, theyre worse in the evening and then tail off when I go to bed. Today movements are agony, cant sit comfortably anywhere and am in stinking mood for no apparent reason! No advice, just my sympathy
(p.s. re the clary sage, my aromatherapist told me tis only to be used when labour starts and absoluetly not before (shes given me something else for pre-labour), dont mean to worry you, just hope youre using with good advice)
