Hi

I was wondering if I need to contact my unit.  I am 39.3 wks preg and have had period pains for weeks now (not sure if braxton hicks or not) I had m/w last week and baby was fully engaged, she attributed the pains to the baby engaging. I had also been monitored as bp slightly raised, but last week this had come right down again.

I have had swollen ankles since sun but they do go down when I rest.  However today I have just not felt right, I feel constantly like I need to poo, I had a loose bm this am but nothing since, but feel like I need to go all the time.  I have also felt a bit sicky and vacant.  are these signs labour is iminent or should I be going to get checked over at hosp, I am sure the labour thing is wishful thinking on my part!  (I do not want to go over as I am currently measure 2.5 weeks ahead!)

thanks strawbs xxx

NOTHING!!!

thanks for the responses!!  was on my own last night dh not back from work until 11.15pm so had a bath and went to bed, had contractions until 4am, got up (another loose bm, sorry tmi!), contractions then stopped.  Have just had another loose bm this am and still feeling pressure, I may phone unit this pm if feeling continues, I am having some tightenings/pain but nothing too significant and baby still moving loads!

I really dont want to go to hosp too early as I know they will keep me in!

thanks again and will keep you posted, are the loose bm a sign then??  it is nothing I have eaten as am not even having proper meals, just soups/sandwiches etc as feeling bit sicky.
