    I was like a crazy woman yesterday getting everything ready for xmas, finished food shopping etc and cleaned the house from top to bottom! I was in bed at 10 as was so tired but have hardly slept, can't remember when i started feeling uncomfortable but i was up at half 4 and then fell back asleep and have now been awake since 6:30! I've got tightenings every few mins and back ache, seems worse if i stand up :shrug: Not really sure what to do next!

    use this to keep an eye on the regularity of the pains and tightings you should be able to print off a list of them if you decide things are starting and you need to go into the hosiptal

    I hope it is the start of things for you- but i have been getting tightenings and pains every day for the past three weeks and it is especially bad when i have been doing a lot- and still NADA. Good luck :)

    No the tightenings aren't painful just a bit uncomfortable which makes me wonder! I have been sick this morning but nothing else, i'm sure he'll wait until after the weekend surely?! Ha I'll keep an eye on it but as they aren't regular or painful i'm sure he's not going to appear this afternoon! :hugs:

    hope something comes of the tightenings :) but if not i hope they go away soon!
    i tend to get tightenings after standing up and doing lots of things
    also i've found if i run up the stairs my bump is rock hard by the time i get to the top! xx
