This is my second bub and with my first I lost my plug and had 3 days of very strong distinct contractions 10 min apart before going into active labour with DD born after 9 Hours Of intense active labour.
I know every labour/birth can be quite different, my question is this, I have been having what feel like soft dull pains like contractions and a sore lower back, my tummy goes really tight with every one? Bub is sitting really low but I am still feeling movements? I am 37+2 but carting big baby my OB would be more then happy for bub to arrive now!!
Any thoughts/tips? I have not lost my plug, could it be braxton hicks?

Could be BHs or pre labour pains.
If the pain gets stronger and need medication or it makes you stop to concentrate then that's labour.
Keep an eye on it and phone your maternity ward

My first two labours I lost my plug at the hospital, not at home.
Are they regular? If you are active do they go away or continue?

I didn't lose my plug with my first 2 (it must have happened at the hospital when I was already well and truly close to having them.
I got extremely painful BH, and my midwife said if a warm bath and panadol don't ease it, then it's probably the real thing.

You don't have to lose your mucous plug, If the pains are regular then it is very likely it is labor beginning
