I am totally confused.
Yesterday morning i had a gushing sensation in bed and a bit of a show. Went to hospital triage who said it wasnt my waters just discharge.
During the night i started to get tightenings every 12 mins or so lasting 30 secs. Have had some blood streaks when wiping after the loo too but not sure if this is due to the examination i had yesterday as its stopped now.
I have had on/off tightenings today and lots of back/pelvic pain. I have mild SPD so is all this pain/pressure down to that? Or braxtin hicks? Or early labour?? I have a 4 year old already but i honestly have no idea whats going on and if this is a back to back labour or just SPD...
Any advice very welcome!!

Sounds like things are just gearing up. I'm sure if you got checked they'd have known if it was your waters so it probably was just discharge.
Are the tightenings painful? Just keep an eye on them and take some paracetamol if they hurt.
You'll *know* when its labour.

Yeah they do hurt. I have to stop what i am doing and wait for it to pass. I feel stupid not knowing but they are so irregular....

I had SPd and a back to back labour. All my contractions were in my lower back started as a mild cramping almost unnoticeable then ramped up. Sounds like things could be starting for you x

Sometimes the cramps are like a tight band round the very lowest part of my bump. I cant remember if thats where you usually feel it?

Do the pains go/ease with paracetamol?

I took some at 3pm and they havent been as bad.

Rest while you can then, if it is early labour it could go on for days on and off so you should get as much rest as possible x

I had similar for a couple of weeks this time and the last few.nights I'd get regular tightenings and think this is it. Maybe due to body having done it before? I hope it happens soon
