im not sure if it was because of the clary sage oil i used in the bath and on my body but at 2.30am last night i started to have painful braxton hicks,they hurt in my back my belly i felt pressure and had 2 pee a thousand times,, my back hurt that much that i had 2 use the TENS then at 7.45am they just vanished....... what a wind up :(:(:( im due tomorrow has anyone had 6-7 hours of braxton hicks constantly then they just went an no labor etc ...???????
The backache could be a sign. The evening before I went into labor, I had a terrible backache for hours. Then, the contractions started coming (over night), and the next day I went into full blown labor.
hiya i havnt had a constant backache it felt like the braxton hicks were in my back .. did you have a break inbetween your contractions and the time you was in active labor? since last night i havnt had anything aprt from the odd BH
i've been having irregular painful contractions (i guess BH's) since last thursday! been to the doctor twice...the second time they were 4-7 minutes apart but only lasting 30 seconds. keep getting sent home - not in "active labor" this is SO stupid to me because i am having a c-section. just don't get why he can't put me out of my misery and take this baby out- i'll be 39 weeks on tuesday!!!!
