    I've been getting exactly the same thing. Kind of like the BH have gone onto the next level. I get a real tightening under my bump and also feel my cervix/rectal area tightening too. My belly gets rock hard and funny shaped like BH.

    I think it's just your body preparing and maybe your cervix starting to dilate too. Still could be a good few weeks away yet. I hope so at least, I'm looking forward to my Christmas dinner!

    I am certain that a bad attack of diarrhea feels just like labour! :roll:

    Anyhow, all I've been getting are the strangest vibrations throughout the whole bump, mostly early morning, and I never thought that Braxton Hicks felt like that so I haven't a clue really.

    Had bad pelvic and lower back pains last night, must be things loosening and gearing up a notch, but I didn't think it was labour until I woke up to a gush of warmish fluid running down the bed. OH nearly had a heart attack. Turned out it was the hot water bottle I had between my legs had just leaked out during the night! :shock:

    Can't help.. I woke up in horrific pain with Tia coming every 3 to 2 mins lasting 30secs to a minute... and they continued like that till Tia popped out. Once of the reasons they said I wasn't in labour was because of the timing, but it why I now know that when you are in labour, you definitely know even if you don't know in the first stages, you will when it matters :rotfl:

    Completely different from BH's...

    I've had mild period type pains on and off for a while now... but the last few days the bh's are much more stronger and my back has become really painful. I remember having back ache with Tia a few days before I gave birth too... but I don't know if its because I have an existing back injury that struggles under the baby weight or if it is something to do with labour. :think:
