    i've had cramps in the upper part of my inner thighs today, and was wondering if anyone else have experienced this in the last trimester? i got curious and googled it, and found pages saying that some women get these alongside their menstrual cramps. i know this is a long shot, and probably just VERY wishful thinking on my behalf... but as menstrual cramps are caused by the dilation of the cervix in preparation for your period, i thought perhaps they could also be present when the cervix dilates in the early stages of labour?

    then again it's probably just the baby's head pressing on a nerve or blood vessel in my pelvis! either way it's BLOODY painful!!

    sounds very promising!

    race you to the labour ward!

    i woke up in the night with various period like cramps so i'm sure my body has realised its got a job to do.

    actually, as i typed that, i felt a twinge in my inner thigh. probably just wishful thinking. clutching at straws now!. tell a lie, i'm actually clutching a mug of raspberry leaf tea! :D

    ha ha, we must all be SO desperate to get our babies out!!! it's kind of funny reading the posts! well my thigh cramps have vanished this morning, but i have had "period" cramping in my lower tummy and also in my lower back since i woke up.

    bet i'll still end up overdue though! :lol:
