    Default Let's play a game called am I in labour!

    Having strong BH time varies but getting kind of painful, stop if I bend over, walking, sitting etc doesn't change them much.

    Feeling nausea

    Loosish bowels (sorry TMI)

    Really sore boobs

    Lower back pain

    and some difficulty breathing.

    Worth trip to hosp or more like a false alarm?

    I probably wouldn't go in to the hospital but you could call the middy if it would give you peace of mind.

    Good luck!!

    Maybe try a warm shower and see if the contractions go away.
    I wouldn't go to hospital just yet. But if you are concerned, talk to your specialist

    Sounds like the beginning of something. Maybe just call your midwife.

    Is it your first MissEm? I stayed home with my first for about 7 hrs after contractions started. I was in tears finally, called at 2am, got there at 3am and still had over 5 hrs to go. Stay home as long as you can if you can still feel bub moving enough and your water hasn't broken.

    Definately sounds like pre labour. My hospital suggested a warm bath when getting bh/contractions. If they subsided they were bh, if not then real contractions. They also wanted me to wait until the contractions were only 4 minutes apart and lasting a minute before coming in.

    That being said I didn't last at home waiting for that to happen because they were very painful and I felt like I needed to go in. 2.5 - 3 hours after arriving I was holding ds in my arms (after only a pretty short labour at home for a first - 8 hours total labour). If I had listened to the midwives who were adamant I had a LONG time to go still and stay home, I would have delivered ds at home or on the way to hospital.

    So my point is, trust your instincts. If you want to go in, do, the worst that can happen is they say you have awhile to go still and send you home. But atleast you will know and put you at ease.

    Same here Donnab - I was told to come in when my contractions were 3 minutes apart. They never were! I was also told I had "a long time to ago" by 2 different midwives, so much so we were told that again at about 7.45am, and had bub at 8.45am!
    OP - how did you end up going?
