    Default 39 weeks constant period pains

    I am 39 weeks today and have been having constant period pains and cramping for the past 3 weeks, it's seriously driving me insane!!!
    I also do bowel movements 6 times a day for the past week.
    My last appt the baby was engaged.
    I have an appt tomorrow but they don't do internals or stretch and sweeps till u r overdue.
    Someone please tell me I'm getting closer to delivery!!!

    Apparently lots of poops is a very good sign you're about to pop. Btw dd was engaged from 36 weeks but I still ended up overdue and induction

    Ahhhh still pregnant
    40 weeks mon and these period pains have not eventuated into anything.
    My midwife just told me it's Braxton hicks but i don't think it's that as it doesn't stop and start it's constant pains. I think it's just my body getting ready for labour and everything stretching.
    U can take a Panadol to take the edge off and rest

    Noooooo! I was so hoping you'd had your baby! I've now got morning sickness type nausea along with the period pains and starting to really feel over it :-(

    Haha u poor thing!!!
    Well could mean u r real close, the girls in my due date group has period pains just before they went into labour so it could also mean u r super close !

    Stupid public hospital refused to do a stretch and sweep until I'm 40+10 days.

    Really? Cause of my history the public hospital I'm going to wants to induce me at 40weeks. But I'm not sure if I want to, despite being over it! Well 12 days til due date. I keep having that 'come on aussie, come on come' song in my head - but with come on baby!

    I only had period like pains and no contractions as such with my first so you may be the same?
