    I'm a week overdue now and had a sweep yesterday afternoon. I've had cramps on and off through the night but was happy to sleep through until 7.30am. Since I woke up, I've been having waves of pain which is worse when my bump hardens. There's no regularity at all in the waves at the moment but my lower back is nearly constantly sore and gets worse again when the bump hardens...

    I'm really hoping this is the start of something but don't want to get my hopes up either - any ideas??

    Thanks girls! :hugs:

    Sounds very promising and like you've had a good kip. Have something to eat and drink and go for a nice long walk. Don't forget your brolly!

    Have alot of pressure in my bum, not sure about the pelvic floor just yet!

    I've just had a shower, done my make up and straightened my hair, got DH to gather all the last bits together for the hospital bag so at least if this is it then I'm ready! :blush: Off out for a walk now, lets see if that keeps it going. Seems to be easing off slightly, hope it doesn't go away! :dohh:

    yeah presure in ur bum is what i ment by pelvic floor! i sometimes found it very difficult to stand up sometimes cuz i felt so heavy in that area.

    must say this is a good sign :)

    Contractions are about 8 mins apart now and not showing signs of going anywhere so hopefully this is it! :)
