I'm 37 weeks and 4 days. I'm in pre labour which I no can last weeks! But I'm having a few symptoms

1. Tightenings

2. Lots of pain/pressure in vagina and bum

3. Back pain which gets worse when I get tightenings

4. Can't sleep

5. Loose bowel

6. Increased yellowy discharge(think its my plug which Iv lost once before in this pregnancy).

Do these sound like labour will start soon?? I was induced with my first and my second I had no symptoms till contractions were 2 mins apart. I just wish there was a big symptoms do I can get kids and husband prepared. My hospital is really hopeless to they told me I had uti when bub was actually posterior thankfully he moved though!!

id go in and get checked. i was 16 when i had my daughter(20 now) and i was just feeling a little weird and cramppy and i was 38 weeks along and decided to go in because i just felt odd so there is a good chance that u may be going into labour. i know when i arrived i was 5 cm and they told me my contrations were every 10 mins apart but i wasnt feeling them at all until they broke my water the next day after they got down to 3mins apart. but yes go in and get checked :) best of luck
