Here i go again!!!......... Last night i was awake for 90% of it with really bad period pain and back ache, i walked round and kept trying to get some rest but everytime i laydown it started up worse, but by 5am i had to force myself to get some sleep as i was getting headache. Got up today and my stomach and back are so sore, my back is constantly aching, my stomach hurts to touch and gets waves of period pains. Why haven't i started getting pains that need timing? it can't be normal to get these pains and be "one of those things!" or maybe i am in slow labour? They are not sharp pains and i get the odd tightening which feels tender but no regularity. I am getting feelings in my bum like i need to poo and i am still getting little bits of snot on my tissue. Does anyone know if it can take this long for things to kick in propely? Sorry, i keep going on about.
