    So yesterday I was sitting on the couch, watching TV when all of the sudden I got these EXTREME period like pains that would go away after about a minute of being there but like 5 minutes, come back. I don't really know how to explain them, but they hurt so so so bad. Then later that night, I was out to dinner with family and when I went to the bathroom, I discovered I had lost my plug. It wasn't blood tinged or anything, but it was definitely my plug. Then throughout the night, I kept getting sharp pains in my cervix area whenever I would move, or whenever LO would move. I also kept waking up because even though I'm on medication to keep contractions away, the contractions seemed to be getting stronger and reaching around to my back more.

    Does this seem like actual labor is starting?
    Because I've already had the shots for LO's lungs, they won't try to stop labor anymore, so I want to know if you all think I should be getting ready to go in, seeing as I don't have my hospital bag packed yet :blush:

    What do you think?

    Try getting in the bath for an hour (mw told me this today) she said if the contractions continue to be 3 times in 10 minutes for an hour and a half and last 50 secs then that is true labour.
    Hope that helps Hun x

    I wish I could fit in my bathtub :( I'm 6'1" all leg, so I don't fit :( and when I try, my bump doesn't even touch the water :cry:

    I'll try a warm shower though. Thanks for the advice :):thumbup:

    Exactly! It doesn't help if it doesn't cover whats hurting :(
    And showers don't help much, since my contractions get worse when I'm standing up and that's what you have to do in the shower.... ugh.
