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?

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.
We're getting married tommorrow, I hope he waits untill after then to get here!! By the way how did your scan go? I bet you feeel alot happier now? xx

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

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)
