    Default Could this be the start of labour?

    I'm 39+1 and have felt off all night. Thought it just bh, have gone to bed but uncomfy and couldn't sleep and feel so neasous like gastro with waves of cramps. Woke up and had really bad runs. Now back in bed with mild cramps/stretching feelings every ten to fifteen minutes. Not painful per say but enough to notice and enough to keep me awake.

    I am having baby two hrs from home and am staying at families which is closer. Hubby is at home now. Wondering if I should call him and tell to come just in case this is the start of things?

    Or should I wait?

    You will know when you are in true labor, there is no mistaking it. I had false labour for weeks and called DH home from work, which ended after 15 hrs of contractions every 5 mins apart! I knew mine was shifting to the real thing when my BH moved into my back. Getting the runs and nausea are good signs, and if you feel less stressed with hubby there then call him. I always felt better when mine was home rather than at work underground where it could take up to 4 hrs to get home. Good luck, how exciting!! Xx

    Ohhh, exciting!

    I think that I would probably wait a while before calling (although this could definitely be the start of labour!). But, if you feel better with him there then go for it now! Even if it's not the real thing just yet, it might make you more relaxed and comfortable having him there.

    Good luck!

    I hated being told 'you will know when'
    But it's true, the pain is so different to prelabour, you really do just know

    Oooh how exciting! Hope you are going well OP. This is pretty much exactly how my labour started, minus the nausea & runs. I had regular, mild period type pains around every 15 minutes, gradually increasing in frequency and intesity. Everyone says 'you will know', but for me it wasn't until I was well and truly in active labour that I realised this was it. I fobbed off my earlier contractions as just late pregnancy aches and pains!
