    since 9p.m. last night (at my hubbys work xmas do!) i started to get painful tightenings every 5 minutes or so and they are still going now. had to go home early from the xmas do as really started to feel unwell - sick, dizzy, and really bad pain across my bump and lower back. i had them all night (having to get up about 2a.m. to go to the loo) and still have them now - my tummy now just feels so sore and i have like really bad period type cramps.

    i tried some paracetamol but they didn't seem to work so i have had a very unsettled night. i can't imagine it's the start of things as still not lost any plug or waters and at my last MW appt 9 days ago she was head down but still free. Was in hospital 2 weeks ago for a few days with regular tightenings but those were'nt painful like these, just uncomfortable.

    sorry for the long whinge - just feel a bit down this morning and i think this baby is just teasing me!!! :cry: xxx

    UPDATE: well, after the pains kept coming rang mw at 6 tonnight and they asked me to come in. on monitor and having regular tightenings again so gotta stay tonight :cry: cervix is still closed tho so god knows whats happening :shrug: her head is very engaged tho - does this mean it could happen soon?

    Like abbysbaby says ring the delivery suite and see what they say, it might be theyll want to check you over otherwise may recommend some pain relief, a bath might really help :+) good luck. X

    well, i was having some tightenings in my belly and sever period cramps on wednesday and thursday. on wednesday i went from 0cm-1.5cm, then got sent home, thursday i started contracting again and went back to hospital, i went from 1.5cm-4cm in an hour and a half, then stopped dilating. spent the night at the hospital and then they started talking about inducing me, but i didnt want to be induced, as I was not term yet. Came home yesterday morning, and I lost my mucus plug yesterday and today some more.
    Anyways, if I were you I would call the hospital and go in and get checked.

    Sorry you're not feeling great, but if I were you I'd defo call the maternity ward, just to be sure. A short call won't hurt and they won't mind. Hope everything's ok, take care :hugs: xx

    Why do they always suggest a bath? :rofl: I haven't dared get in mine for months because there are no handles and I have no idea how the fudge I would get out :rofl: I hope you feel better soon mrs_rj :hugs:

    PS omg you must have got married the day before us!

    Oh hun :( thats not nice.
    are you going to ring anyone? or just see how it goes today?
    (i wouldnt have thought little one will come early, especially now its snowing hehe ;) but maybe worth a trip to the hosp to see what they say?)
    when i had those painful braxtons they made me feel really sick too (though i wasnt sick which is good) keep me updated xxxx
