    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?

    I've had this for over a week now, it's worse in the night and I feel like I'm never going to go into proper labour. My due date is tomorro and I just want to get it over and done with now. xxx
