    Tonight I've had some weird crampy feelings. They're not so much like period pain, more like round ligament pain or atleast they're in that area, sort of my groin, side of very lower stomach and upper thighsish :wacko: I've also had the bowling ball between legs feeling all day so do you think it might just be my muscles and ligaments softening and stretching even more?



    (p.s. if anyone wants to tell me its an early labour sign thats fine too :rofl:)

    I just had this conversation the other day with my girlfriend as I thought I might be having round ligament pain and knew she had it so wanted to compare. She had EXACTLY the same feeling that you've described, she even said it was like a bowling ball too lol! Her doctor said it was round ligament pain (mine apparently is just a groin pull), so it sounds like that's what yours is too. Unfortunately, she went 11 days past her due date, so not sure it's an early labour sign, although I hope it is in your case!

    i've had the ligament pain too hon, the feeling everything down below is stretching out and rather swollen. plus i think 6 out of 7 days this week i've had period pains, like everythings getting ready.

    however, as low as roo get's it's not like you describe, same with maddi, who never engaged properly. so hopefully it's a good early labour sign :D

    I remember being pregnant with amelie about 5 days before I had her and I was saying to my mum it felt like she was going to fall out and that's how I feel now. I'm so sure I'm not going to go past edd I'm going to be devastated if I do. Wish I could just chill and enjoy my final days!

    thank you lovely, a vbac would be brilliant, would be i can get back to normal quicker, pick maddi up, drive etc. i was pretty poorly with maddi's recovery but as long as she comes out fine, then i'm happy. me and james have said, we can cope with anything, so feeling pretty positive :)

    what would be lovely is either vbac OR section - not labour+section! but that's life! don't be terrified of section lovely, i can honestly say, regardless of pain etc, it was the best experience EVER!! it was amazing laying there, knowing i'd done all that work and now it was time for maddi to come out 'her' way! most positive experience of our lives :D if we ever have another, i'd love to drop the curtain tbh! and it was rather funny seeing james is tight tight scrubs :lol:

    haha! Aw well hopefully everything is okay for me so i can have my home birth :cloud9:

    Vaginal births are fine recovery wise cept from the bruised feeling down there! You need to keep taking ibuprofen and paracetemol or it hurts when you stand :wacko: Im getting arnica this time so hopefully that helps.
