Am I going into Labour?

Back from the docs, saw the midwife, I'm 38 weeks & baby's head is fully engaged!! Been getting pains in my lower back and period like pains for a day or so. Tonight the period pain is getting worse! More intense and closer together. 

Could it be time to get my bag packed? 

Hopeful and excited (fingers crossed!!) lol



It sounds like it could be ! Keep us updated !! Exciting lollollol

Give the hospital a call sweetie, see what they say, just remember that they might send you home though... Good Luck!

Don't worry if your a first timer as your username suggests you probably have a while yet, call the hospital if it gets worse but take a nice hot bath and calm down, you'll be fine. HUGS XXXX

If you haven't eaten, get some food down you ! It's going to be tiring work ! Also put some snacks in your bag too and don't forget to take bit sanitary towels i forgot those and the hospital didn't like me using theirs. EXCITED FOR YOU !!!
