Clara - that's how I started on Xmas day. Just achy lower back, like pre period. It wasn't until that night that I felt my first 'contraction'. Then had her 48hours later.
Get walking! My husband made me walk up and down hills and stairs.

I didn't tell my family until I was getting contractions every 7 minutes.

Also not sure if I said before but I had a bath too early and everything slowed down. And sleep when you can. If I hadn't have slept the two nights with contractions on and off I wouldn't have had the energy for the labour.

Fingers crossed.

I want to go for walks but the weather is terrible and I don't want to go on my own, OH is too tired after work to go walking lol, relying on my ball but at this rate the baby is gonna be like tigger when she (finally) arrives!!! Pains were strong last night, have still been there today but not as strong as last night, I usually have a soak in the bath everyday but I just showered today to avoid slowing anything down!!!

I'm lucky, DH is a teacher so off anyway. We did walk through horrible weather. It's worth it.

Love the tigger comment.

DO you have stairs at home. Walk up and down them sideways.

Still no baby here, 42weeks today. They've been trying to induce me since saturday morning, lots of painful contractions over 2 days only took me to 2cm but not favourable enough for waters to be broken, was facing another 24hour pessary this morning but my waters broke last night so waiting for bed on delvery suite today to start pitocin. Not the natural labour I'd hoped for but its getting exhausting now, my body just doesn't seem to know how to labour! Congrats ladies on your babies!!!x
