    On xmas eve I was getting strong period type pains with BHs & lower back ache about once every hour which stopped at around 2am then today (xmas day) from around 1pm i've been getting the same type of pains but every 20-40 mins ish... they dont seem to be getting any stronger or closer together so presume its not labour & they will probs stop soon.

    Is this just normal for a few weeks before due date or could this mean labour is close?

    yup... sounds like your body gearing up for labour. rather than labour it's self.

    I thought I was going into labour on xmas eve when I was having BH's every 10 minutes lasting 30secs each, with back pain and period pain, but then come evening they mysteriously vanished.

    I think it has a lot to do with how much you are doing to.. I was rushing around making last minute preps for xmas but went for a meal at the in laws in the evening where I sat with my feet up a lot.

    I had the same xmas eve! Had constant BH and period pain that even woke me up through the night. I had a lot of BH yesterday but much less sore and not cramping.

    Hope we are all gearing up :)

    I would happily go anyday now!

    I keep needing to tell myself that it could be an induction though and I could be late.

    Going to try and go for a bit of a walk every day and see if that helps :pray:
