I've never gone into labour by myself. I was induced with jake, and up until the gel went in, i felt totally normal. His head never engaged and basically my body did no prep for labour until i got the gel, which resulted in a 17 hour long labour. boo.

But the past two days i've felt so different. I cant really put my finger on it, but physically i've been getting period like pains that come and go, my lower back is killing me, but that comes and goes too. I havent noticed any pattern to it tho. I do know that baby is almost fully engaged. had an u/s on monday and the doc couldnt get a proper head measurement cos the head was too low down.
I dont want to leave the house and i'm afraid being by myself. Havent really nested, but keep checking my bags to make sure i have everything.

Does this sound normal for the last few days of pregnancy? Does it sound like i'm getting ready for labour? Or am i just being a whinger?!
