    Default First pregnancy, need advice!

    For the past few hours I been experiencing terrible aches and pains in my lower back, hips and butt. Its gradually getting worse and worse.. Im currently 37.3 weeks and booked in for a c-section on the 6th due to him being breech. For the past few days I have also been getting severe period pain but im also constipated so im not sure if its just that. Just wondering if any of this sounds like labour? I was told by my sister-in-law to have a warm shower and if it doesnt stop its most likely labour. Please help as we live pretty far from the hospital and dont want to go it its nothing. I also dont want to leave it to long incase it is labour cos if it is ill need an emergency c-section. xx

    Maybe call the hospital and see what they say? All the best for the arrival of your baby :-)

    Sounds like it could be labour Hun. Does the pain come in waves? Maybe time it as well. I would ring the hospital ASAP though.

    Hey ladies. Thanks. I ended up having a warm shower and going to bed. Was a long and restless night but the pain eased.. its still there but alot more dull so I doubt it was labour. And yes it was coming in waves I think, (getting worse at certain points) but I couldnt feel anything in my stomach other then period type pain and that wasnt regular.

    Im glad the pain eased up for you a little bit It does sound like your body is preparing for labour so thats a good sign! Not too long to go now
