Hi everyone Im now 39 + 2. Yesterday I had some mild backache, requiring me to put a hot water bottle on it. Nothing further happened. This morning I woke up and the pain is back, along with a few pains in the groin, (like Im due a period) so Ive had a warm bath which has helped the pain. I also had to dash to the toilet this morning (thought i was gonna crap myself-lol) although I didnt have 'the runs' it wasnt exactly solid- and there was plenty of it (sorry tmi), so I wondered if this could be the 'clear out'? I might be just getting ahead of myself cos I just wanna meet my little man....but does anyone think this could be the start of early labour? According to my midwife who I saw Monday, she said his head is 'well down'.
