    Well after all this time I thought I haddent been havig them and it turns out I have, I just didn't realise what they were! I guess I was expecting some sort of pain or pressure down below, when really its just my bump goes hard all over!
    So know I know Im being really aware of them, and they do often happen really frequently, normally when the baby is being pretty active. Just in the hour I have been on the computer this morning it has happened about 4 times.

    How frequently are other people getting them?

    And is it possible that if they are more frequent its a sign that labour is not far off? (or am I just hoping!)

    Hi hun, I know that if you get more than 4 in an hour you should let your midwife know as it could be a sign of labour starting. Also, if they become quite painful, or regualr enough that you can time them, agin ring you midwife for the same reason.

    Hope all is well.

    I had them quite frequently with Ava, but they got very uncomfortable and sometimes painful the last few weeks.
