Could they be mild braxton hicks, Ali?

Hope the est comes back fine, going.

I had my consultant appointment today and that’s my last, now I carry on seeing the midwife. My legs and feet are pretty swollen today but my blood pressure was perfectly fine at the appointment. She noted that baby was 4/5th engaged so I’m guessing that’s why walking is a little harder lol

Unique that's possible, they have gone away now which is good. I have noticed few BH this pregnancy and they've been painless, just the discomfort of the tight belly feeling (like it's stretching my skin almost?), these felt just like period cramps. They've gone away since yesterday afternoon and I've not noticed them since so I am assuming it was a growing pain or something normal! She's been active the last few days too so maybe I'm bruised in there hahaha!

Not to scare you Aligator but those period type pains are usually associated with effacement and dilation of your cervix. It doesn't necessarily mean labor is imminent but it does mean that things are happening like they should be. I usually get them during my last month.

Oh really?! That's crazy! None of my googling told me that haha. Although I admittedly didn't Google a lot, I just wanted to make sure it was okay and once I read it was mostly normal I stopped. The pains have gone away...I would be ok if she came in a few weeks but I do want her to cook a little longer to avoid any possible NICU stays or preemie issues.

I am over 36w now and get period pains randomly since 34w. I never had it with my other two pregnancies, so I was getting worried, but have heard it is normal. And if it is labour it will get worse. You'll know it's labour

Many people have said there's no mistaking labour pains!!!

So another new symptom...lightning crotch. Baby's movements are really painful and I think she's dropped some and it hurts SO MUCH down there

Ooh the lightning. I’ve been having that for about 3 weeks now and it feels as though it’s getting heavier when I walk. I have the midwife on Tuesday so I’m intrigued to know if baby’s head had dropped any more, it’s only 4/5th at the moment.

I had my husband buy 2 huge bags of pellet ice. It's the best way to stay cool and hydrated. I craved it in my last pregnancy too.

My sister just had her baby, so I'm getting anxious to get my little guy here. Feeling huge and uncomfortable. Back pain is ramping up again as is poor sleep. Also, probably TMI, but my boobs have started leaking at night already!! Guess they just remember what to do from my first. I'm so annoyed that I'm already having to use nursing pads.

I've pretty much given up on anything but dresses at this point. Nothing else is as cool or comfortable!! May this last month go quickly for us all!

I keep having labor dreams... as much as I want this pregnancy to be over, I am so not ready for labor!
