I am 39w exactly. Since about 5pm this evening I've had regularish pains. On average every 10 minutes lasting about 1 minute. The pain is like period pains but comes in a wave, it hasn't really got any worse since it started. I have to breathe through and stand up and rock, it's about a 6.5/10 pain wise I'd say. Pain is in uterus and feels like I need to poo
The pain seems to be worse when I'm sitting or lying down. It can be caused by the baby moving. If I sit on the loo or sit up in bed it makes the pain continue for longer than 1 min.
I don't know if it's relevant but obviously it's really hot and I have drank a lot this evening (probably four pints of water since 5.30 and a big glass of apple juice plus ice lollies) and have barely peed and pee was very yellow.
Is this labour or BH? Should I put thr TENS machine on? Any tips for getting to sleep or am I dreaming there 🤣 I am shattered already!
Thanks so much for any info. Scary times!
Labour or Braxton Hicks?
