So i am still the same as i was when i posted. Pains every 7mins been at my midwife appointment and she told me to rest and it could happen tonight as when you are relaxed it gives your body more chance to go into labour as your hormones are stronger then. Shes couldnt exzame me as im under 37 weeks by 2days. She said she wont stop the pains as i went early with my last 2 babys so around this time to have her is normal for me so finger crossed she comes tonight cause im in so much pain.
