    Sorry, have no advise but to call your midwife. Perhaps its normal but I have no experience since a first time mother.

    Please call doctor/midwife and ask for advise, I would definitely get it checked out.

    good luck and hope you feel better soon xx

    Possibly normal! I've had a terrible stitch like pain on the left twice now which goes round the bump and to my back and just won't ease for a couple of hours.Takes the breath out of me! All I can do is lie still and quiet... sometimes rubbing it helps a little. I assume maybe bad bh or part of the ligament pain or maybe the baby in an awkward position, but was going to query with mw when I next see her. Don't know if that's the same thing as you're talking about. Baby's still moving fine... so long as babe's fine, I don't care much what it does to me!
    Also mega leg cramps, like you report... tends to happen in my sleep, then I wake in agony lol - my leg ends up tight and cramped for two or three days and I end up hobbling like an old woman! Apparently potassium helps with that, so plenty of potassium rich foods like bananas etc. Good job the end is in sight for us, eh?
    If you're really worried, always best to ask the mw. Feel better! ;-)

    I don't mean to sound harsh but you have been on a few times this week when you have been in pain. Why do you not just call the mw if you have been in this much pain and discomfort. They may be able to help you or discus induction if your spd is really bad. I hope I don't sound like a cow, I don't mean to. It just sounds like your having a really tough time and could do with some help. All we can do is say call mw but it's up to you if you do it. I really hope you do and they can advice on what to do. Hope you feel better soon. X

    I have been calling the midwife she's usless I can't get in touch with her, I have been to physio today and they've said there is nothing more they can do as I'm just getting worse so I went to the sure start centre where she is based and she looked at me like I was the most inconvenient thing in the world she ignored most of what I said but she has reffered me to the consultant on Thursday to talk about induction but the midwife said that it won't be until I'm allot closer to term ��

    Do you have a community mw you can call? Or call ur antenatal department and say u seen mw but she is no help to you and u feel u really need to see someone. Can a doctor or the hospital prescribe u something? I know some women on here have been given really strong pain killers x

    I'd book a gp appointment - my mw is quite elusive, only seen the same one twice throughout the pregnancy, she's always off sick or on holiday! I tend to go to gp first if needed, or wait for the booked mw appointments. Gps are more able to prescribe stuff for pain or refer you for stuff anyway!
