    Default Is it true you just know when you are in labour?

    Warning TMI:


    I am currently 39+3 and believe I started loosing the plug over the weekend, lots of pinky mucous, a few blood streaked jelly like globs too. Since then my lower back has been hurting badly on & off, sometimes I feel it low in my pelvis but not always. I was monitored at the hospital last night as I hadn't felt bub move & sure enough get there & bub was moving like crazy. Have had lots of movements today too.

    The midwife at the hospital thought it was probably the beginning of pre labour although they didn't do an internal exam. They were really happy with bubs heartbeat so sent us home. I feel silly ringing the hospital again.

    My question is could this be pre labour?

    Hi Lama, not much useful advice but wanted to say OMFG how exciting!!!! It does sound like things are going to happen soon. I had a lot of BHs this time and worried that I wouldn't know when it was the real deal. Boy, what a silly thought - no mistaking it!

    I lost my plug on a friday, had pains like period like pain on and off on the friday night and saturday , waters broke 9pm the sat night and had my son sunday night...

    i would say that yes its pre labour and your getting ready to meet your new bub..
    start timing the pains and see if there is a pattern

    Good luck and how very exciting !!

    Sounds like bub is thinking about a vacate

    Agree, it will build in intensity and there is no mistaking it ( for me anyway)

    Hang in there!

    i was told that once you cant talk thru the contractions, its time to go to hospital, not sure how true that is

    if you are unsure as to when to head to the hospital, call them and ask, they wont mind at all...

    No real pattern as yet. The back pain only last about 30 to 45seconds & time in between varies from 5minutes to an hour. The only thing that helps is rocking on my knees with my head on the bed. Might have to try sleeping like that since I do get some relief.

    Have had very loose bm's too today, makes such a change from being constipated!

    personally, i would just go about things as normal but keep an eye on things and time the pains.... sleep when you can just incase
    as for the loose bms, i had them as well, i was told its just the body getting ready for labour

    I didn't just know.. I posted a thread on BH at about 4am asking if I was or not I didn't have pre-labour though.

    I think a good guide for when to go to hospital is when contractions are less than 5 minutes apart. For me, mine were never that far apart- they started at about 4 minutes apart, but I laboured for 6 hours at home before I went. Or yes, as above- when you can't talk through them any more.

    Good luck

    I can still talk/hum when I get the pain. I just expected it more in the tummy not the back!
