    Sounds like you are having Braxton Hicks, or you are doing too much and need to relax. Do you still feel baby moving??

    Try a hot bath, relax and if you are worried phone your midwife that is what they are there for!!

    Let me know.....

    Hope all goes well at GP.

    Braxton Hicks are practice contractions not as strong as real ones but you can definately feel them. Your abdomen will tighten and contract. Baby can feel this gently gripping and massaging her/him.

    Let me know what GP says... Why no midwife??
