    Oh wow.. That's very early...! Did she come out at all... Or just stay there the whole time??


    I was hoping that being engaged was a good sign of early labour lol. I've dropped heaps now and have had really bad lower back pain & pains in the stomach on and off for the couple of days.. Have heard this is like a pre-labour.... Did any of you experience this and have any insight as to what it could be? Sometimes I'm in that much pain that I can't walk and have to sit down. Finding it hard to sit down on the lounge for long periods of time too.. Have been hopping in the shower 3-4 times a day to help with the pains.

    How far along are you now chocciequeen?? I think I will be relieved when my waters finally break! Lol ... At least then I know there is light at the end of the tunnel! Hate feeling like the pain is pointless!

    I was sure I was going to be early with my first, and so did the midwives and family and friends as my baby engaged around 30 weeks and sitting very low to the point I felt like on a few occasions towards the end that I had to check her head wasn't out cos that how it felt!! However she was born 10 days late after all that!! My second engaged the day before she was born. Best of luck xx

    I thought something may have been happening last night.. Pains were getting more intense.. But nothing just a bad night... Now my legs are aching today

    This is probably gross and way too much information but did any of you experience more pooing before labour?? Have gone so much lately (like over 5 times a day over the last couple of days - which is not normal for me) & have heard its your bodies way of cleaning out before labour. Did anyone experience this??
