I'm 16+1 and today I am suffering with pains in my lower abdomen. It's different to the period type cramps I have had previously, and I am worrying because I know it's in the area where baby is. It feels really tender, almost like it's bruised, although it isnt. The pain is worst when I walk about. So far the pregnancy has been problem free. Hubby thinks we should go to hospital but as I've explained to him, if I had visited the hospital everytime I had a niggley pain we would never be at home! Just wondering if anyone has experienced the same thing?
