    After being monitored yesterday I was file to keep an eye on my braxton hicks. I've had lots tonight so called l and d and started timing them . They're every 7 minutes ish for 50 seconds. I had a bath and took some paracetemol which has made them uncomfortable rather than painful. The midwife said to call back if they get less than 5 mins apart, become mpre painful or if my waters go. She seemed to think it was probably just latent phase labour and m body getting ready. Anyone does had this around 34/5 weeks?

    LEt me know how u get on, I'm still having the odd one but nothing like last night. I have a MW appointment this afternoon I had been intending to cancel but think I will keep it and see what they say..... really don't want to be examined.

    My LO isn't engaged yet so if I was getting ready for labour wouldn't she have dropped first? Then again she's a big baby and I have a short body so she might have done and I haven't noticed :haha: Have you tried the old something hot/ something cold/ something sweet trick to get her moving more?

    I stopped with RLT almost immediately as the BH were getting so I was doubled up in pain - don't think I need toning that badly.

    I got woken up by BH about 4 or 5 times in the night but I've no pattern now. Yesterday I counted 6 bouts, two longer ones at 30 mins between BH, 3 that were around an hour and half each with them every 15/ 20 minutes and then the big lot last night - 3 hours or contractions every 10 mins then down to 7 mins. Eventually it changed to 9 minutes, then 13, then stopped

    I just got worried last night as I had backache with them and had to breathe through them etc. I'm still getting them now but will ask midwife later on. My friend was saying she worked in the USA for a while with some native americans and they used RLT to induce labour - decided to leave it until I get to 37+

    Everything I've read says rlt doesn't induce labour. I've had bh since 18 weeks!! But since stopping the tea and going onto tablets that when they've got a bit stronger. I font need to breath through them but they are quite tight alot now and really uncomfortable.

    I think I just maybe didn't get on with them. I just wasn't comfortable with the amount I was getting on RLT x They were using the leaves directly when my friend did it so that could be why.

    Think they're different for everyone, how are you now? I'm off to see midwife shortly

    I've managed to get my arse into gear, get dressed, Imogen dressed, put slow cooker on with tea and just making lunch for me and imm seen as I've not eaten yet! Then she'll have a nap so might do my hypnobirthing and relax a bit. Not had any more strong bh, if I've had any at all I've not noticed them. I've got mw on Wednesday, and growth scan a week today!!! Yay I just remembered that ha ha. Xx

    She's now measuring 37 weeks and I need another GTT tomorrow. Just feel like she's growing far too big and there's nothing I can do about it. :cry:

    Will be watching my diet of course! They think the BH I get are because of uterine irritability as she's grown so quickly but if they do turn into preterm labour they will give me steroids but probably won't stop her arriving

    :hugs: i've had this since around 35 weeks. they often pick up a pattern. we went in for monitoring yesterday after her pattern of movement changed and the pains picked up a real pattern, i think for me, she seems to engage and my body begins practising for labour, then it tails off and now today, she's moving nicely again :)

    it's all such a worry isn't it hon :hugs: xx

    Glad to hear you're still hanging on in there. Trouble is with LO's size they are likely to induce me if I don't go early. GL for when your bubba arrives hun, not long to go now! x
