Contractions Have Started!

My sister in law messaged me last night that she has started to get lower back pain and some pain on her stomach. She is pregnant and due anytime, so I am pretty sure she will be going into labor one week earlier than expected. Just hope all goes well, and my niece will be okay being away from her mummy for a few days if the labor takes that long. My niece is two so is very attached to her mother! I will keep you all updated.

She's definitely getting near to her time, then. How exciting! What are the plans for her daughter while she is in the hospital?

Although she may go into labour early, with my two youngest, I did feel contractions for some time before actually going into labour. Just be aware of those false labour pains.

You are right about that, she had it for hours and then all is gone.

@gudheart it happens sometimes. Her baby will come sooner or later.

Ooh how exciting! I hope all goes well for her. My son was 5 1/2 when my daughter was born and he hated being away from me. Luckily I didn't have to stay in long. My friend went into labour at 9 pm, had her baby and was back home by the time her other child woke up so he didn't even know she had been gone!

That is the worrying part as she is so attached to her mother!

@gudheart I'm sure she will be ok. Children are more resilient than we give them credit for.

I hope so too. Last time she did not need any painkillers apart from gas and air.
