For the past week I have had irregular lower back pain and period like pain. I went to my midwife for my check and she said my baby was 3/5ths engaged and the period pain is my cervix ripening (this was on Thursday).
Yesterday (Friday) in the afternoon I had constant lower back pain and abdominal pain from around 5 o'clock to around 9 o'clock with braxton hicks contractions though it has eased off.
I was just wandering if any mums have experienced this very soon before actually going into labour?
i am supposed to be driving 4 hours today to go and visit family and am unsure if I should just call it off incase something was to happen.
