Could this be early labour? Anyone had the same?

35+2 here with second baby. For the last week or so I’ve been having period like cramps and also non painful braxton hicks.
Tonight I’ve noticed that I’ve been having sort of sharp achey pains that are shooting down from groin to thighs if that makes sense and more period cramps. Nothing regular though. And also just laid down in bed and I have a consistent lower back pain going on. Did feel my cervix a few days ago just out of interest and it was quite high but I could reach it and it was very very soft.
Would have a bath but toddler is whinging and refusing to go to bed Sad
Just to add my first baby was born at 41+4 so prem labour isn’t a consistent or expected thing for me.
Panicking now as I stil have things to pack in my hospital bag, I haven’t even bought anything to wear in and after labour!

If you’re unsure, give your midwife/maternity unit a call and just talk things through, they’ll be able to advise you what to do, when to go in. Sounds a bit suspicious so call them for sure if it escalates! Bath and panadol when you can otherwise

Don't panic, but as it's your second baby if I were you I'd get checked out as they can come more quickly than the first. Give the midwife a call, they won't mind if it's a false alarm.
