whatisgoingon - November 23

So I am 35 weeks and 3 days pregnant with first child. Have experienced bouts of bad nausea on/off for the past 1-2 days and just have felt "not right/unwell". I have also been getting a lot of stabbing pains/cramps in my groin/upper thigh area lately too. The other night I started to get cramps/pinches across the top of my stomach (fundus), down low in my pelvis, and then all over my stomach. But mostly the pain was up the top near the fundal area. They were really uncomfortable and painful and just wouldn't go away, I thought I was in early labour and this was it! I tried sleeping all night but couldn't really as I was woken constantly with the pains and cramps in my groin etc. This morning I have got out of bed and I still have these little "niggles" in my stomach and it just feels "different", I know it's not true labour because they would have progressed more. So I guess it's just false labour/braxton hicks but they sure havent gone anywhere and are quite uncomfy! LOL. I wonder how many weeks this may go on or if this means I could only be 2-3wks away?

ps - my baby is well engaged/low in the pelvis (as confirmed by Dr/Midwife at last appointment few days ago - she was shocked how low he is for 35wks and a first baby). They don't do internal exams until you are in labour at my hospital. :)
