I'm 36 weeks today due 28th July, I have a 17m old son which I was induced for so I don't know the actual feeling of naturally going into labou . The past week I've had horrendous period pains on and off, the feeling that my waters are bulging and they're going to pop any minute (obviously I don't know if they are but it feels like it) I've had a dodgy tummy the past few days and I am very certain I'm slowly losing my plug. The pressure down below is unbareable, could this be slow labour or just my body getting ready?

Hi sweetie the pain could be Brixton hix also could be a sign labour isn't far off. I had my second at 36 weeks. Best thing is to get your self checked at the hospital, they will put you on a monitor and do an exam to try and find out what's going on. If you are in early labour you may need steroids for the babys lungs to develop. Good luck x
