    Help! I'm not usually a pessimist but over the last 2/3 days I've been getting on and off really strong abdominal pains, kind of like period pains but stronger and making me double over and takes my breath away.
    Is this just trapped wind?! Or something more serious? I am getting worried as I have just been on a week's holiday up to Scotland and was lugging a rather heavy case. Anyone else got these symptoms?

    It could be trapped gas because I've had pains that sound like that and that's what it was. I think it would be safe to talk to your doctor about it, just to be on the safe side.

    Well its eased off a bit..... my friend who is also pregnant is hiring a foetal heart monitor off the internet, we're going to share the cost of it for a month its only £30. I think for peace of mind its really worth it, just to hear that little heart beating away will make me feel better. At least if I can have the reassurance that baby is still jumping around I will be able to handle the pains a little easier.............. thanks for your reply xxx

    **** Update *******
    The heart monitor which me and a colleague are sharing for one month's hire is GREAT! If anyone has the chance to hire one, go for it. I thought that the quality would be really poor but I heard the heartbeat as strong as ever. :D
    Its great for that 'in between' waiting for scans, just a little reassurance that all is well in babyland!!!
