    Hello all. I'm probably worrying over nothing but today has been so horrendous, I need a second opinion. I've been getting several Braxton Hicks an hour all day to the point I don't feel safe to drive. I've been getting intermittent period type pain for a few days, along with brown flecks in my discharge (sorry!). Do you think this i normal or a sign or early or impending labour. I've not had all the pre-labour symptoms, like diarrhoea or a proper show... any thoughts? Am I just being a hypochondriac or very unlucky with lots of BHs? Or should I be going out to get batteries for my Tens machine!? lol I'm 36+5 and 3/5 engaged as of Thursday if that helps?

    Sorry and thanks!

    It could be signs of labour, or it could just be your body getting itself all ready. I'd get the batteries out for the TENS, but don't bank on going into labour. I've been having symptoms like that for about 6 weeks, and I'm still here, and still huge!

    Be prepared incase it is, but don't be disapointed if it isn't. I've got myself all ready for a hospital trip, just to have them stop as randomly as they started.

    Good luck!

    I've got the same symptoms as you but nothing much seems to be moving. Fingers crossed for you though! x
