hi im 39 weeks 4 days today and ive been having very uncomfortable tightenings in my belly for around two days now, ive timed them and they seem to be coming every 10-12 minutes lasting from 30 seconds to 2 and a half minutes long, i get very painful period type pains in my belly and back before during and after these tightenings which has had me trying different positions to help ease them but that doesnt work and just a few hours ago i decided id had enough of this pain and thought of relaxing in the bath for an hour or so to try ease the pain a little but even that didnt work!!, i get a stuffy nose only at night and cant sleep due to these things that are happening with me, i also get very painful shooting pains between my legs as though someone is forcing a hot poker up there, babys head is engeged and i was told at my 38 week appointment that the head was at a 2/5? at my appointment the midwife said i was in he latent phase of labor, i dont know whats going on with me as i ate tons yesterday, now today i have hardly eaten a thing because i feel too sick, sorry to ramble on but i really need to know if anyone else out there has been going through anything like this right near the end?
im a ftm by the way
hope to hear some responses as i dont know what to do or what to expect
