    Im trying not to panic, but it was pretty scary. :(

    Early hours of this morning, well it was around 3am-ish i finally got into bed ready to go to sleep, i woke up half an hour later with these horrible pains in my stomach that slowly went around to my back, they lasted for a while but then died down, and then the same would happen again around 10 minutes later..I was huffing and puffing through them..Im surprised my OH didn't wake up as i do this shaky thing with my legs when im in pain!

    Ive had one today, but since ive been to the toilet (For a number 2..sorry! hehe) ive been okay, but my god they hurt so much i have to grit my teeth or move around until the pain stops!

    Are these the legendary braxton hicks or should i panic that something is wrong?..I have my midwife appointment in 2 days so Im thinking about mentioning it to her and seeing what she says?..I just dont want to go on and ignore the pain and something be wrong with little man

    Thanks ladies :)

    Ouch! It does sound like bh's, or maybe if you did need to go to the loo, because everything's all squished up it was moving about?

    I've been having bh's and yours sound like what i've had - flippin' painful! Definitely mention it to your midwife though just to be on the safe side

    I had these at 24 weeks ish, my midwife friend told me that BH shouldn't really hurt and you definitely shouldn't need to breathe through them. Mine was a UTI, I got antibiotics. I'm glad I didn't ignore it. It could of course be just one of those things but get it checked out. xxx

    Sounds like trapped wind! This is really painful and spreads around the back. Th first time it happened to me I fainted, the pain was so bad. Hope you're OK now.

    im so glad you posted about this!!! yesterday i had the exact same thing! it was actually excruciating! i was utterly convinced i was losing the baby. it happened twice and lasted about 10/15 minutes each time. but not had it since. and babys been moving and heartbeat is fine on the doppler. but oh my god it was agony!!! how far along are you???
    i reckon it might just be growing pains for me. im 19weeks and 2 days gone and so far not had much bump but the last few days its been getting alot bigger all of a sudden, think the pain might be related to that! xx

    Could it have been ibs? Ibs pains REALLY hurt sometimes and only usually properly go away when yo finally go to the toilet but when you do finally go its such a relief and it seems to just burst out (sorry bit gross but telling it like it is lol)
