Is this it?

So from 11pm last night (it's now 2pm) I've been having really bad pains on and off that start in my back and work their way round the front into crampy pains, the top of my abdomen is also feeling them, they are not regular but bad enough to have kept me awake all of last night, think I also lost my plug in the toilet this morn! Is this labor starting? I am 40+1 weeks, this is my 2nd baby but I had an emergency section with my first and didn't experience anything like this, don't wanna ring the hospital yet

Id be on my way to get checked. I doubt they send you home at 40 weeks. If anything rhey would monitor you and baby and help you along. Exciting ! Good luck mama!

Sounds like labor is starting, if you're going fir a v-back that's awesome but you should head in go get checked.
I never had regulate contractions with my first but in 12 hours went from a 1cm dilated to holding a baby.

Sounds like the real thing.  Off to the hospital with you.  :)

Rang the hospital, they are happy enough for me to hold off til they become more regular, really praying this is the real thing and not a false alarm as I really want a vbac and if I don't go on my own I'm being induced on Monday and if that doesn't work a section on Tues
