    Could well be. I had a few cramps a couple of days before going into labour. Just try to relax and not push yourself. Fx for you :)

    Maybe, who knows :eek:) I've been having waves of backache generally overnight and quite uncomfy bh with pressure, especially if I'm upright. I don't know whether I've just been overdoing it. I'm due after you tho so mine is prob nothing, fx it is for you. I hope I don't have 5 weeks of this! Lol

    Hi hun, our due date is almost the same, and i'm also getting a lot more BH, been having period type cramps and I feel so much pressure down below, can barley walk. Our baby is also engaged. Could be a sign, but who knows. With my first I had none of this, no pressure, absolutely no cramping, but 2 weeks after she was engaged I just went into labour. Cramps started, and 16 hours later she was born - no warning signs. Oh, except for losing my plug (also 2 weeks before labour). But that I havent had yet this time. Hope its soon for us both xx
