    I had very mild period cramps for 2 days before having LO. They were on and off both days and very infrequent. On the third day they gradually became more frequent and painful.

    My contractions started at 6am and were 3-4 minutes and lasting 30-40seconds straight away. It's really hard to explain but they felt like a really intense period/squeezing pain in the bottom of my stomach and back. By 9am they were 2 minutes apart lasting over a minute and he was born at 11:50am!

    I thought contractions were supposed to be irregular and like 20 minutes apart at first but thats obviously not true!
