Thanks for replying ...
Still no change this morning although I did manage to sleep last night so I am presuming they are Braxton Hicks or very very early ones and they have gone down to about 1-2 an hour now ...
Yeah I've been getting cramps in my leg for a few weeks now cause babs is on a nerve so now Im dreading the real contractions if they feel like that lol although cramps have a weird effect on me they make me scream laughing and dance around rather than cry with pain so this labour will be err different if they have the same effect lol ...
gonna try the ST now see if I get my show ... fingers crossed I go on time its so uncomfy now lol (for me anyway little man is showing he is very comfy in there!)
Thanks again! xxx

Hiya, yey, not long now. From reading descriptions of labour I think everyone varies on what it feels like but it sounds like you might be in early stages. I was like that with Mia but it lasted for 3 days before she arrived. The midwife told me to sit on a gym ball if you've got one and gently bounce on it to help move things along. I didn't have one so I'm not sure if that works. Good luck, I'm all excited for you. Feeling super broody now. Lol. x

Im still here with a bump!!!!
Was supposed to have a sweep yesturday which I thought would 'get things moving' but when midwife came over she said babs had moved from being engaged to now being Oblique (never heard of this before but apparently it means his head was just outside the pelvis and slightly to the left) and she said she couldnt perform the sweep and promptly sent me the hospital for a scan!
This happened last week when I seen her she said the baby was breach and sent me for a scan and both last week and yestrday at the scan turned out baby was still engaged and the sonographer said he hasnt moved for weeks as he was engaged from 35 weeks...
so an hour on the bus to the hospital and another back having my 7th scan in the last few weeks still didnt get the little monkey moving!!!
Since my local midwife obviously cant tell an ar*e from a head I decided to book my sweep at the hospital on friday hopefully I will have my monkey on Saturday cause thats my nanas birthday and my mum has said since I got pregnant she bet I would have him on her birthday or fathers day either one!
Hope all you ladies are well xxx
