    I don't like wasting anyone's time. But been having major stomach pains, just had a 'clear out'. Still got the pains but not as intense. Is thus labour or something else? Heeelp!!

    When contractions are on top of each other and you don't have time to talk that's when it's 'it' ;)

    Run a bath and try to relax hun xXx

    Pain has all gone now. Just gentle pains now. But crikey they were intense before. Could it just be the start then? X

    When I was induced I had cramping then a big clear out then went for a shower and all kicked off.

    Good luck!!

    Could have been baby engaging if he/she hasn't already?
    I'd make sure your hospital bags are all packed and ready to go. Once the real contractions start though, they only get longer, closer together and more intense. You'll know about it!
    Sounds like your body is getting ready though :) Exciting! xXx

    I had a 2nd sweep yesterday and non stop brown mucusy stuff. Guessing it just the plug coming away again. No pains this time as of yet. I just don't think these sweeps will work but the induction will. That's when they use pessaries isnt it? I'm already 2.3 dilated so hopefully it wont take long xx
