I'm 35+5 and was just wondering if there are any "signs" you get that could indicate that labour may start soon? I know everyone is different and it can be hard to tell and that "you'll know when it's happening" but I only ask as I have been experiencing some concerning symptoms recently (lower back ache, more frequent braxton hicks that seem to intensify when moving around, feeling sick, period pain like cramping, loose bowl movements, not being able to sleep well, teary/moody) They may mean nothing, they may mean something but it's my first baby and my partner is working nights a 3 hour drive away and my mum is currently on holiday in Spain so I'm kind of dealing with all this on my own! (I'm still working so don't get to see my partner during the week) I see the midwife on Friday but I am unsure if these symptoms are something I should be addressing earlier or whether I'll be fine leaving it till Friday and speaking to my midwife then? Had a scare a few weeks ago that baby may be coming earlier as was measuring small and Dr was concerned but all seems ok now but I feel like such a bother to everyone since then and I don't want to cause a load more for my partner/midwife/mum if it's just going to turn out to be nothing but at the same time I don't want to ignore it if there's any possibilities that baby may want out sooner!!
Sorry for the long post but I really don't know what to do.
Thank you in advance xxx
