Labour pains?

I’m 39+3 days pregnant and woke up last night at 3am to period pain feelings that were quite uncomfortable. But they were constant rather than coming in waves like contractions. I took some paracetamol and went back to sleep and I’ve had nothing since apart from some belly tightens. What could these pains have been if not contractions?

It’s likely just your body getting ready. I’ve had this a few times in the past week as well as constant lower back pain. I’m 39 weeks today x

I had exactly the same thing last night at 1am 🥲 I am 39+4. Hopefully it's a sign that we are near to meeting our little ones ❤️

I had period pain for 2 days before my contractions started - didn’t know what it was and even when my contractions began they felt like period cramps coming and going so wasn’t sure until they got into the 3 in 10 lasting 45secs to 1 min, but had dull pain for a couple of days before so probably a sign it’s starting soon! x
