I'm at my wits end with this, hopefully someone can help...
I'm 40w3d and have now had REALLY strong contraction like pain for 4 nights now. It starts within about half an hour to 1 hour of going to bed, and keeps coming throughout the night - no closer than 30 mins apart, but sometimes closer to an hour. Once I get up in the morning I might get 1 or 2 more they'll stop. I get some aches and pains throughout the day but nothing like at night .
The pain is extremely painful from the first one - I can hardly move! It wraps around from my lower back across my pelvis, lasts for about 30secs to a minute I think.
Aside from the pain itself, I'm hardly sleeping an am so worried that by the time this baby actually comes I will be exhausted before labour even starts.
Has anyone had this before? I've mentioned it to my OB but everything seems to be "normal" to him.
Thanks heaps in advance
