I've been having period type cramps since tuesday, along with back ache and contractions but they're not getting any stronger . The contractions dont go away with a change of activity like Braxton hicks. I've called the midwife (on Thursday) and she said it sounded like I'm in early labour/the latent phase. ive had no plug or anything either, and the contractions get less overnight then when i wake up they come back in full force. I really cant help but think this is just my body tricking me. Does this sound like the latent phase or could it just be my body being mean?
