    Default Prelabour? This early? WDYT?

    I'm 34 wks 4 days. For the last 2 weeks my Braxton Hicks have been getting worse and more uncomfortable. 3 days ago I had a tiny bit of bloody show. At the moment I can barely walk to the kitchen without super uncomfortable tightenings and for the past two hours I have been having off and on period pains and back pain. I'm measuring 2 weeks ahead according to the us I had on Friday.
    I'm just really scared I'm going to feel like this for the next 5-7 weeks!! has anyone had a similar experience?

    Sorry, haven't had this, but if you are concerned, it's probably worth giving the middies at the hospy a ring to see what they think. Better to set your mind at ease

    Yeah agree. Just ring hospital to speak to a midwife. They will be able to give you a clearer idea of what's going on. Good luck!!

    Argh Atropos you are only a week ahead of me that's scary to think you may be!
    Let us know what your middy says. It does sound like the labour signs I have been warned to take notice of!

    Hi there. Yeeeep, that sounds familiar! This started for me at 35 weeks, on and off. I started losing my plug from that point and had period pain and back pains. I had my DS at 40+6, but labour was only 5 hours, so all that practice was worth it in the end! What helped me alot was weekly pregnancy accupuncture, fortnightly from 38 weeks. Just being able to rest and relax for 60-90 minutes was heavenly and it did seem to help with the intensity of the sensations, reduced stress and helped me sleep better. Good luck!

    I don't think it hurts quite enough to be actual labour iykwim? But I was induced with DD so I don't know what it's like to go naturally, which panics me a bit!
