    anyone else had this at 37 weeks? iv been havin bad on and ff cramps since late last night and into today on and off all day. me waters havent gone and no bloody show so im convinced this is just a build up of things to come?? belly has completely dropped. cant wait for my 38 week app to see what midwife says about position of baby, last time she said his head is low down with his arse in the air, so basically doin what he should be at this stage :D the waiting is killin me and i might have a few more weeks of this ! lol apparenly latent stage labour can go on up to 3 days !! :wall2: if thats even whats happenin xx

    unfortunately I have had this on and off since Monday along with back ache! from what I have read it can just be the baby getting comfy in your pelvis I am trying not to get my hopes up being so close to my due date xx

    I've had cramps on and off for about 3 weeks now :( haven't had a show or anything and midwife said head is engaged and that's why I'm getting cramps. She also said its completely normal and said it doesn't really mean anything other than things are as they should be! Xx

    Had my 38 week appointment today and also have contractions but not real labour contractions. My mw said this is normal and the head is engaged but she also thinks I will go to 40 weeks again (because I have a lot of fluid left and baby is thriving). Let's hope not since baby feels so low I cannot even sit without having pain and needing to put my legs super far apart from each other.
