Hi I couldn't seem to settle last night (well worse than normal) and got to just before 2am and had the most awful pain in my belly - uterus was hard like a BH but also so painful i was having to breathe through it like a contraction! I managed to get out of bed and walk a bit, which didn't ease it. I then felt like i needed the loo (no2) so did - felt bit better after so thought that's what caused the pain and went back to bed. Well exactly 10 mins after the first pain another came - Having already been through labour I know what a contraction feels like and this was the same- lasting 60 secs and unbearable. I then went back to the loo (as felt like that again) and had terrible diarrhoea! this went on 3 or 4 more times - with the same pain and regularly - I thought you usually have the urge to empty your bowls during early labour so was panicing! and the pains were exactly the same as labour pains with DS! I was crying 'no you can't come out now you're too little!'and swearing at the pain (just like in labour with ds, lol) I had a scare with premature labour at 27 weeks with DS. But I layed still in bed and no more pains came and so i dozed back off - but for a moment there i was freaking out! mirren then did acrobats and kicked me loads for the next hour so i lost about 3 hours sleep! woke up today feeling ok, just exhausted and belly feels like pulled muscles! don't know what that was about, but don't want a repeat performance!
