    Default Early signs of labour before c section??

    Im booked in for a c section in ten days time. For the past day or so iv been experiencing lots of cramps and sharp pains very low down. Im really uncomfortable. Today i feel really emotional and tired. Im wondering could it be a sign bub is planning to make an early arrival? Should i do anything??

    You could maybe give the pregnancy assessment unit at the hospital where you're delivering a call and ask them about what you're feeling. They'll be able to talk you through it, or they might want you to come in for observation if they have any concerns.

    I would call and speak to your ob, especially if you are having the c section for medical reasons (my first one I had placenta pravia so any signs of labour I had to call my ob or the hospital).

    When I was pregnant with DD4 I was having early labour signs so spoke to my Ob about it. He said if I have any labour pains to go straight to the hospital to be checked over if it was infact labour then he would deliver her by c/s then. My c/s was brought forward by 2 weeks due to it and high BP.

    If you can't have a natural birth then I would be calling the maternity unit and/or OB to ask what they think. If you can have a natural birth and are comfortable with it then you could always see it labour progresses?

    @KillerHeels, how did you go? Are you feeling better now? Have the pains and cramps stopped?
