Merry Xmas everyone! Thought I'd pop in with a quick q before DD gets up!
I had my first false labour lastnight.. Was out for dinner and on the way had a full-blown contraction. Then throughout the meal I had more so I started timing, I had 6 that were 5 mins apart, lasting 30 - 45 seconds each. (there were I think 3 before that before I started timing them).
Not quite the relaxing Xmas Eve meal I was hoping for!
I've been in labour before and I was quite sure they were the real deal.. couldn't talk or anything through them so we scoffed our food (in between contractions!) and left, had a couple more on the way home and then they just stopped.
I remember having this with DD but I can't for the life of me remember when it happened.. (if it was close to her birth or not)
Does anyone know if this is a sign that labour isn't too far off?
I'm 36+4 with a gigantor baby, I'm booked in for an elective c/s in a little over 3 weeks time.
