    I seem to be getting an awful lot of what i can only describe as period pains these past couple of days. I've had them for the last few days but this morning, they've been here since i've been up :lol: Or seem to have anyway.

    What's the difference between PP and BH? :blush: :confused: I don't think she's engaged yet so can't see it being labour of any kind but then again, i don't know anything cos she's my first :rofl: :haha:

    I've been having period pains on and off for about 4 weeks and no baby yet! They've been stronger since a sweep on Thursday but they come and go so I don't think they're a sign of anything going to happen soon unfortunatly.

    I asked mw about this as there was one night a few weeks ago where I was convinced there was something wrong and she said it could be a sign that LO was engaging (and sure enough when she examined me, LO had moved down and started to engage).

    With my first I woke up with bad period type cramps and within a few hours it turned into actual contractions :) Just wanting to give you ladies some hope :) hehe. I woke up around 3am with the cramps and by 6am they were regular contractions (still nothing to work through, I wasn't feeling anything painful or anything but were regular etc..) and I was on my way to L&D. I spoke to my specialist about the cramps as I have been having them for the past two months and she said sounded like minor BH's. Now I get the real tightening and it hurts real bad when they happen and she said they were bad BH's LOL

    id had them occasionally before and then found out baby was 2/5 engaged. then most mornings for past few week have woken up with slight period cramp feelings, not too strong but just enough to sense a feeling and each time i thought oooo i wonder if this is it and then it passed as quickly as id noticed it, think its something to do with the baby engaging more
