    Hi So Confused

    Accordign to my NCT info, labour can apparently feel like period pains to start with, or like back ache. The main thing is that the pains have a pattern as the contractions become stronger, longer and closer together over time.

    Hopefully this is it!

    Lots of luck

    My first labour was period pains / backache right up to 10cm. I was already in hosptial being monitored, but no contractions. If I'd been at home, I'd have been in trouble cos I'd been told to time the contractions before going in to hospital.

    If the period pains get really bad, get it checked out.

    Another good sign is having the runs or being sick.........its natures way of clearing everything out before labour starts. With my first I was convinced I had food poisoning until the pains started to come on!!

    Good luck

    With my first the midwife was convinced I had food poisoning when I started to throw up, even though I told her I thought my waters had broken (I was right they had). But then who would believe your first would come 5 weeks early - took us all a bit by surprise!!
