I'm currently 39 weeks & 2 days pregnant, for the last week or so I've been experiencing BH at night which have a decent pattern then go away over night, I have also lost my musuc plug over the last 3 days. Tonight at about 5:30pm I started getting tightenings every 15-20 mins again but didn't think anything of it, to see it if would help kick things along my hubby and I had sex at about 8pm. Since then I've been having stronger pains lasting about 40 seconds & about 7 mins apart. The tightening is in my back and around my stomach but I'm just not convinced this is actually it! After all my BH I just don't want to get ahead of myself! What do you think?

Ooh, that does sound promising MrsRS!
Have they got any closer together or more intense since you first posted?

Hi it certainly sounds like a possibility! Your post was written a few hours ago so hopefully you may have had continuing contractions and know whether baby on its way, how exciting for you! 😁 x

Thanks for your replies!
I continued with this pattern for another 3 hours or so before everything completely stopped...😭 I woke up during the night and went to the toilet to have 2 more tightening but since then, absolutely nothing.
I'm trying not to get discouraged but it's so hard when this happens 😭😭 hopefully it just means baby is close
