    I may be getting excited over nothing, but Ive been having Braxton Hicks every 20 mins, and they are lasting longer and getting a bit stronger. I woke up last night around 3.30am and couldn't get back to sleep because they were uncomfortable. They don't stop when I lye down either and I can feel tightening inside aswell as just at the top of my uterus. My OH has had to have an hours extra sleep and off work this morning because I kept him awake, bless.

    Ive also had loads of discharge over the past few days :oops: and the baby is definitely quieter, but no waters breaking or a sign of a show yet. What does everyone think? How long does the early stage last for?

    Thankyou

    hi hun, i hope it is your time!!!!

    have u tried a bath, if it stops u know it was just a practice. in the early stages of my labour i had a bath and took some paracetamol, in my case it just got worse!

    fingers crossed
    for you :!:

    sounds like labour. Dont worry about no show, i kept waiting for a show and didnt get one untill i was almost fully dilated. go fo a walk to speed things up but dont tire yourself as you will need your energy for later.

    Hey Everyone!

    The Braxton Hicks have slowed down, but I had a bit of a show today. It was just a streak of blood :oops: but I think thats enough to make me think it may happen soon - hopefully!! Im getting more of a sickly feeling now and groin pain. I will keep you all posted!!! :D

    Hello! Just an update, I keep getting loads of aches at the top of my legs. My body is having a clear out! I have pooed :oops: (sorry) at least 8 times in the past 24 hours, even at 4am this morning! I saw the midwife this morning and she thinks Bean will appear this week, shes getting really excited, which is making me more excited!! I really hope these aches and pains progress into labour.

    I hope everyone is well, and I will let you all know what is going on. Im getting more and more symptoms of early labour, my midwife even wrote early labour in my notes, I will keep thinking positively! :D :D

    Love Jenny & Bean
