    I didn't end up going- couldn't get anyone to watch the kids and by the time hubby got home they had slowed down (still getting them but not as regular). I'm rather over it all to be honest.

    I'd personally probably still go get checked hun. if you go now it should be nice and quiet and you should be seen straight away. better to find out than worry yourself.

    take care.

    Last time we went we were waiting for over 4 hours to even be seen ( we were sat in chairs at the end of a hall way and nobody even asked if
    I was ok), was monitored for 15 minutes and sent home because they didn't know what was wrong even though my midwife (who wasn't on duty but rang the labour ward and explained the situation) had expressed she was concerned due to the fact I was almost in an accident and she was worried the sudden slamming on the brakes may have done damage.

    I'm new to all this too but isn't there a plug that blocks the cervix? I have no idea what it looks like but it would be pretty obvious if that had dislodged wouldn't it? I hope your going okay xx

    Yes the mucus plug but Some women don't lose it until well into labour etc and therefore don't notice. I never did with either of my previous daughters births.

    If you can't get to the hospy to see a midwife, then can you take a couple of panadol, lay down and organise someone to watch the kids later/tomorrow do you can get checked out?
    Sometimes these pains are the bodys way of commanding you to slow down and take it easy. But if it was me, I'd still get checked out just to make sure

    No such luck, have nobody else to watch them. Im trying to take it easy and had a fairly quiet day today. I think it's something I just have a deal with for now. If something changes drastically I guess I will just have to take the kids with me but will only do that if it's the worst case scenario.
