Answer: Hi, Thank you for your enquiry. It sounds as if you are getting ready to go into labour but it is not established yet. It is advisable to go for a long walk, get some rest, and eat small snacks regularly and to try to relax. First labours can take a while so don’t get too tired too early. Best wishes, Alex
