    ...I'm wondering whether this could be another sign of labour? I'm 39 weeks now and for 2 weeks have been suffering from intense braxton hicks. Today I am still getting braxton hicks but have been getting worse stabbing pains in my cervix (I have had these before but not as bad as they have been today). In the last hour my legs have started cramping very badly and my lower back is also cramping quite intensely.

    Hmmmmmm probs another false alarm but we will see.

    It is horrible!!! I've also been getting clear outs too as another symptom. It's soooo frustrating as you get your hopes up and then it quickly leads to dissapointment. I wonder if when we actually go into labour we will think it's another false alarm!!

    Lol I keep saying that! I'm going to be in labour and just thinking it's another false alarm! Im not sure I would mind that though lol, finally thinking right this must be it and going to hospital to be told I'm 7cm dilated lol! Fingers crossed it will soon be the real thing for us both huni :) I just wish my waters would break so I can know for sure lol xx
