Hi, Now this is going to sound like a really stupid question, considering that I am pregnant with my second child but please bear with me... I am 33 weeks pregnant with my second, my first child is almost 5 and a half so my memory is a little shot coupled with baby brain I lost my mucus plug last night, well some of it.. it wasn't a lot and was just a creamy colour.. no bloody show or anything, but I have heard that this is common in the second.. Anyway, I googled if I should get it checked out or if I can wait for my midwife appointment on Tuesday, and all the forums say that as long as my waters haven't gone, and I don't have any pains etc then I can wait.. My question is, what do contractions feel like.. (like I said totally stupid I know, but I really cant remember)... I have some lower back pain which has come and gone throughout the day when I move positions, but now I am having like what I THINK are baby kicks but they are really low down and then (sorry for TMI) a shooting pain in the area baby is due to come out of... My partner is currently on vacation and isn't back until Friday, so Im hoping im not started as we live outside of the UK and don't have any family here... and I also don't want to drive to the hospital to sit there for a few hours and it be normal kicks... Sorry for long post, like I said im home alone right now so im probably worrying a bit more than I would if I wasn't!
