    So for the last few weeks I've been getting back pain and tightenings towards the top of my bump - and have put this down to BH.

    But this morning lying in bed I got really bad period type cramps along the bottom of my bump, like where your bump meets your floo floo... it just happened again sat on the sofa.

    Not felt anything like this all pregnancy - is it just something normal? baby doing something low down causes pain?

    I keep having dreams he's really early and I'm shitting myself haha

    I'm being a right worrier recently :wall2: xx

    I've been getting this on and off for weeks. I've just been putting it down to the good old "latent phase" and baby moving down. It's horrendoulsy uncomfortable at times, but I don't think you have anything to worry about just yet.
    Don't blame you for becomming a worrier, it's a scary time!! I've been fine so far, not really been worried about anything...until last nights episode of BH that were nothing like before. Thankfully they eventually went off, but I've been left with major bump & back ache this morning!!

    It is scary, but don't feel silly and fret alone!! That's what PF's for!! But it is nice to know you're not alone and that it's probably just normal!

    My girly doesn't stop, that's how she's ended up being nicknamed "Fidget"!! And I'm really strugglig now she's seriously run out of room. If she's not pushing her bum n knee out the top of my bump or pushing her bum out the front when she's turning, then she's wriggling arms and shoulders round really low down. It's horrid! Especially when it feels like she's trying to reach out my foof...actuslly feels like she could fall.out at times!! Lol bloomin' uncomfortable doesn't cover it!!

    I had these a few weeks ago Ruth, at one point even the hospital thought i was in early labour (clearly I wasn't otherwise if have a baby by now lol!) in the end they put it down to 2 things the baby moving into my pelvis and engaging and in the process of doing this stretching the ligaments! If they become regular or the pain is getting worse give the hospital a call they would much prefer you to do that than worry alone xxx

    I know what you mean, it feels weird putting your trust in people you don't know over something so important. We have to trust the professionals though, you'll only stress yourself out otherwise x

    It just worries me knowing how slow they are over there and knowing I've got to have a certain amount of anti-biotics before she's delivered, I'm just worried they'll fob me off and then I won't get them in time!

    No I haven't Ellie, I was going to book a tour, then I found out about the GBS and that I'd have to go straight to CLU and as it's just in the door, I didn't bother. But if you've not been in there recently, I'd go take a look. It is SO different now! It's huge!
