    id just keep an eye on it, i didnt have a show until i was in full blown labour and my waters didnt go until right before i started pushing so you dont neccessarily need to have them for labour to start. If it was just one pain then i woudlnt worry x

    Could it have been a strong BH?

    i've been having the same, like period pains in my back and hard bump. I don't know either, suppose if it progresses to anything with a show or more frequent then it maybe earlyish labour! Sorry i'm not much help lol! X

    BH standa for Braxton hicks!

    I've been having the same thing. All night last night from 7:30pm until about 2am I had horrible period like pains in my back, stomach, and going down my legs. They were HORRIBLE and my water hadn't broke nor did I loose my mucus plug so I figured they were intense braxton hicks. They stopped and I haven't had any today yet so thats probably what they were! I'm also 37 weeks and 3 days! :) Good luck!
