Post subject: Contractions
Hi ladies, hope your all ok. I think I had some 'exercise' contractions last night. Well I'll let you be the judge as we're a little unsure. It was like an achy feeling or cramp like sensation in my upper abdomen followed by strong tightenings (braxton's). I had about 5 in the space of about 1.5 hours. I'm 34/35 weeks. I guess I'll know when they're the real thing?

Hi Gingin,
Feeling very uncomfortable now, I think he has engaged as I feel alot of pressure down low. Have had back ache all day on and off. I guess this is what's to be expected in the final few weeks.

hey Booter --- did you manage to tie the knot and keep your legs crossed at the same time LOL - talk about cutting it fine - !!
yes scan blew me away - like everyone else i guess i was completely gobsmacked for the whole day never seen anything like it in my life !!
midwife dates were out a bit - they said i am more like 10 weeks not 12/13 - so i guess the afty sickness will be here a couple more weeks
funny enough i am just filling out our wedding application at the moment -
CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU BOTH ON THIS YOUR SPECIAL DAY
LOTS OF LOVE GINNY XX

Hi and thanks to you both. I am now married and very happy. It was a very low key thing at a registry office with two of our closest friends as witnesses. We decided to do that because I wanted to be married before baby comes along and then in a couple of years do something on a grander scale with family. We've been together 11 years so really we should have done the proper thing long ago.
The back ache seems to have eased now. I was adament he was going to be really early but things seemed to have calmed down a bit now. Perhaps he is just keeping me on my toes!! lol. xx

Post subject: Hiya
I was having the same as you the other night - I couldn't sleep, and baby kept wriggling, I was getting braxton hicks aswel, and could feel the babies head pressing down, he was 3/5 engaged before hand, so I now think he's gone down even further.

I was hoping it was labour, as the pain was bearable, but unfortunately I'm still pregnant and the days are getting longer! But I'm still smiling (just about) Very Happy

Yeah, it's a but of a hard time these last few weeks. Your so right, the days are getting longer. It's a really daunting prospect that I possibly have 5/6 weeks of this go.
