    Default Strong pains/contractions ONLY sitting/standing.

    Aaaaaagh. I'm due in two days. If I sit upright or stand I get strong pains or contractions in lower pelvis - maybe Braxton Hicks? Very painful. If I lie down they all go away. How long can I expect this to go on??? Want her out now! No other signs of labour except frequent bowel movements. Very frustrated.

    I had this for 24 hours before full blown labour started, midwives said it was stretching pains or cervix effacing so thinning out.
    Hopefully once labour starts you will dilate quicker as you're
    already thinned out

    I have the same, but bubs head is just very low. Cervix is still in tact...It freaking hurts! I litterally feel your pain. I am only 36 weeks so I hope your almost or are in labour and my bubs just move up...I need to clean the house first before she can come...it has been destroyed!
