I had the exact same thing for a couple weeks before I had my son but he only came 2 days before his due date
I'm having the same thing. Yesterday I had contractions for 4 hours that wrapped around to my back. I had cramps and loose stools and had to walk around and keep trying to change positions. Thought it was Labour but then it went away. Try and bath and moving around and see If that helps when they hit. Oh and drink lots of water. Good luck
How far along are you shannie?
