Well I started feeling better and thought I'd hold out until my midwife appointment Friday but now I'm really crampy again with tightenings so gona phone the hospital!

Iv become such a worrier recently and can't help but think something is wrong especially as I lost a baby last year and don't know why!

Well I saw a new midwife she was lovely and checked me over, didn't want to do an internal but she did say she thinks I will have baby early and maybe need to look at taking maternity earlier than I had planned as I'm not currently looking after myself x

I can't believe her answer! they should have definitely done an internal, if the cramps continue go the day assessment unit, you need a proper check.

From my own experience today, they don't seem to do internals in the UK unless they are pretty convinced you are in labour! I lost my plug on Friday and I've had lots of cramps and BH today. I've also been having ongoing issues with babies movements going out of pattern & very quiet and so decided to go get monitored today just to double check! Baby is fine, they are hopeful I might go into labour soon. I asked if they'd check any progress down there and they said not while I'm not in obvious labour as it doesn't mean a huge amount. Your mucous plug regenerates (although unlikely at my stage of pregnancy) and if I am a bit dilated, I could be for ages, doesn't mean labour is particularly imminent sadly! They said they'd only be concerned if my waters go!

Hope all is OK Lauren!

Hope things are okay. If it makes you feel better... I probably lost my mucus plug weeks before my babies were born, so it doesn't necessarily mean that labor is imminent. However, I think you could still have been checked for contractions just to be safe. It's much better to get some proper answers as sometimes here you are getting worried and you are given such ambiguous responses that could mean simply anything.

Well yesterday I had a couple of strong contractions that actually made my eyes water and couldn't talk through them but then back to normal BH

Had quite a few BH today but don't feel like much happening, found out I'm anaemic today as well so I feel like crap!

How worrying all of this must be for you! I'm so glad you're past the threshold when your baby is doing great, is plenty big, and would be just fine on the outside with a little help at first... You've got to have your needs met and get lots of rest. When I had prodromal labor (safe to Google), I had these symptoms for over a month before I finally went into labor. It was miserable. It was painful. It was sooo stressful. You really could have these symptoms for months and not have true labor pick up. This is VERY common for a fourth baby.

This has floored me literally the last couple of weeks has been like bam!

I'm so tired and breathless and got pain in my back in my ribs which i think is the anaemia but I know the tablets take a few days to kick in 😭

I'd rather have an early baby than feel like this if I knew baby was a good weight 😭
