I feel your pain literally!
I am now 5 days overdue. Been having loads of cramps that don't go anywhere for about a week.
Then yesterday they gradually got much worse, and my lower back was aching too, I tried to think nothing of it and went to the shops. Then I had 4 or 5 contractions over the course of an hour and couldn't help but get my hopes it that this could be it. I even said to hubby, to start getting the last few things ready for my bag.
Obviously I tempted fate because the contractions stopped as quickly as they started, and the cramps fizzled out by late evening.
I havdn't had a show or any other signs labour is imminent. Feel a bit crampy today, but only when I'm walking round. DOn't know if its just frustration but I am really emotional today, I am on the verge of tears all the time and for no reason.
The thought of waiting another week, is very depressing!
