    I was wondering if anybody could help me.....im almost 37 weeks but the last week ive been getting shooting pains down below.....then i get little cramp and it goes away again until i start walking a few steps...it is really painful...my friend has had a baby a few weeks ago and said i could be in slow labour..also i didnt realise but got the urge to clean last nite and today she said was something called nesting and she could see me going into labour in the next few days.my appetite has changed i rarely get hungry have to force myself to eat.......any opinions would be great as im worried???

    I had some incredibly sharp pains yesterday, right up through my bits - made me screech!! But none today, but a bit achey - head engaged this week, so I think it is just things getting ready!!

    I have that for a week already and i'll be 36weeks on wednesday..
    The pain is so bad and i hardly walk or when i try to get up from the bed in the morning it's killing me.. Also my LO head is engaged so im kind of hoping for delivering sooner..

    OMG don't scare me...I'm only 32 weeks and I started feeling those pains couple of weeks ago....and I haven't been getting too hungry...oh god I hope I don't have this baby early...it needs to incubate a bit longer!!!

    PrettyBonk don't worry it dosent always mean you will go into labour early, it might be that the baby is head down already and is pushing on ur cervix..
    But for myslf i am hoping that is it!:)
