Okay so I'm a first time mum and totally new to all of this, but I've had a really sore tummy on and off all day. Feels like period pains/cramps. I don't think it's contractions (not that I would know how they feel though lol) but its pretty much there all the time as doesn't go away and come back, but it does start to feel worse then eases off and my stomach gets really hard at the same time. I've also been having lower back pain today and a feeling of constipation. that I don't usually get. Does anyone know what this may be? I've been reading up online and looks like it could be ore labour pains? Has anyone had these and how long do they last?
