    Very confusing, I know...

    I was at church this morning and I started to have very strong lower back pains like when i'm on my periods, every 10 minutes, accompanied with strong contractions on my belly (stronger braxton hicks). Very unconfortable feeling, so we left church and called the midwife for her opinion.

    She asked me to described my pains then said "it looks like you're going into an early labour, stay active and mobile, it might last til tomorrow".

    but as soon as we got into the car the pains stopped. Now I'm at home, the pains have gone completely but it's strange that I had contractions for just an hour then nothing... :think:

    my OH really wants me to stay active. I told him "look, i'm on the forum, it takes a lot of typing you know..." if that's my definition of 'staying active', you're garanteed to give birth before me! :D

    I wouldn't bet on it! I'm not being induced until Wednesday and I've got no signs of it happening any sooner!
