  • they might be braxton hicks - they are like mild contractions your body do that as a trial run before actual labor ! be ready its anytime now :)

  • Hi danielle25, I have been in a similar situation, 38+6 today. I will be induced tomorrow and have had 3 sweeps, had the bloody show, loose stools and period like cramps. Visited triage and they advised I'm only 1 cm dialated, the tightenings indicate body is getting ready for labour but not there yet.....can't wait to meet my little one now. Good luck
