    Hi ladies,

    I'm clutching at straws. I so want this baby to arrive! Fed up of waiting! Feeling a bit period painy - anyone get this shortly before labour commenced? I'm getting a few painless tightenings too, but I don't think that means anything really.

    Come on baby.....

    Thanks!

    I've been having that too, hasn't amounted to anything yet. Hope it does for you, as you are overdue, poor thing! Good luck:)

    hello londonangel,

    before I went into labour with my daughter I had period like cramps and then the contractions started that evening didnt have her mind you for another 4 days as she was back to back :-(

    Sounds like something is going to happen, hopefully soon xxx

    Well I'm in exactly the same situation. Spoke to my midwife today and she wasn't very optimistic about those period like pains. She said it's just my uterus practicing before labor and it doesn't mean the labor is coming. I hope someone else will tell us something opposite, I'm fed up too, especially with those pains :hug:

    I have been having bad period cramps for a week now that wake me up at night, and my braxton hicks have been pretty intense for the past week as well, sometimes coming every 20 minutes on the dot. But as of yesterday, my cervix is still high, thick, and closed. I wish I could see some progress but I am only 38 weeks so I am sure I have some more time to go.

    I was told today by my mw that the period type cramps were due to baby getting lower and more engaged.
