Didn't want to read and run... I was worried with my first as obviously no one has a clue what to really expect first time round... Everyone labours differently but for me, I got what I would describe as strong period pain along with lower back pain and tightening tummy which stopped me from being able to walk- it never really got much worse than that to be honest...
Its quite normal to get crampy and braxton hicks without actually being in labour (we're still stretching, etc) but if you're worried that you're in early labour then give your midwife or delivery ward a call for advice. Hope that helps x
