    Are the pains regular at all? Or are the pains getting longer in length? x

    How often are they hunnie? A shower shouldn't effect anything except maybe make things more comfortable for you? I often sit with the shower running down my back to ease the general pains of pregnancy.
    I'd give your midwife a bell or get a docs appt today if you'd rather not call her.
    They are there to help and you're never wasting their time.

    LOL awwww bless ya. If they're not regular and aren't increasing in pain strength they they more than likely are braxton hicks.
    More than 4 Braxton hicks an hour is unusual though and should be monitored.
    If they got longer and/or closer together then you know the drill.

    more discharge can be a sign of things kicking off. but it could just be hormones too. i would give her a bell if i was you. have you been getting more about 5 mins apart?

    How far are you now 36 weeks?
    If you want to talk to someone you can always ring me? I'm no midwife but I'll listen if you need someone to talk to?
    Are you in the house on your own?
    I think you should ring the midwife though - she knows the best plan of action and it's better to be safer than sorry x

    Jess hunny,

    try not to worry to much, take a warm bath if you can, i had this alot on my two, turned out to be braxon hicks, they do get stronger and more frequent at teh end, if after your bath you are still getting them, then phone your midwife.

    best to call your mum home to be with you, she can reasure you

    have you been drinking lots..... if not maybe you cud be dehydrated.. that can cause painful braxton hicks?


    try drinking and have a lie down.. if it calms down its most likely not labour.. if it stays the same.. ring the midwife see what she suggests.

    just dont painc... your only a few days from being full term so ur baby will be fine if u did deliever now


    let us know
