i dont think i ever had then - although from about 34 weeks i sufferered with severe back pain! then again,we went on hol when i was 38weeks and i had such pain in my tummy it was unbearable - i had to go bed! i thort that was the start of my labour!! we were camping on a army base (woodvale in southport) my only way of gettin to hospital would of been via air ambulance - they use the army base as its landing spot! haha!

I had them with Charlotte from 36 weeks...with George I had them from 17/18!!! The mw said not to worry but for a little while I was worried I was off into premature labour! Obviously not because he was late hehe!

From about 34 weeks with him I used to have a good hours worth of them after tea from 7 to about 8...freakishly I went into labour with him at 7pm Crazy Cuckoo

Had none with first preg = boy. (aparently many women dont feel them in first preg)

felt many with second pregnancy.

Now on third pregnancy have been feeling them since 18 weeks preg.
I was havin 4-6 each hour from 11am til 4pm, so had a sleep they went but rang mw for piece of mind - and she said sound slike ive been over doing things - and to rest 24-48 hours.

With 2 lil boys - whats rest LMAO !!!
