    Hi everyone,

    For the last few days I've been having stronger BH than usual. Not painful and not regular. Just more than usual and stronger.

    Last week I had an episode of reduced movements and she was also very quite on Friday.

    Anyway, yesterday the cramps got worse and worse throughout the day. Come 2pm I was in agony. I vomited twice. Had about 5 more cramps. (I was doubled over in pain) went to the toilet looser than usual (sorry tmi) Had a bath and they went.

    I thought maybe I had a D&V bug (which is why I didn't call the midwife) so I cut out fluids and food for a few hours. But was able to eat and drink around tea time no problem so it couldn't have been a bug.

    From then I had a few niggles/mild cramps. Some lower back ache and shooting pains between my legs.

    I've woke up this morning (I feel fine). But my bump has disappeared. Baby's moving. Not as much as she was (singed reduced movements last week I've noticed she's changed her routine - not as active in the mornings).

    Anyway this picture was taken two weeks ago.

    I will post another taken today.

    Do you think baby could have dropped? Is it even possible at 27 weeks? Or just changed position. She was head down last week when I had a scan.

    Do you think I should speak to a midwife about yesterday? Or just keep an eye on things?

    Thanks xx[​IMG]

    I can really see a difference, it probably her change of position hun, but I would be the same as you. I'd ring your midwife and if you get to see her take the pics if you can. It's always better to be safe and I'm sure everything is fine xxxxx

    Is there not a base where you can ring to speak to a midwife? In Newcastle we have a midwife base where if needed there's a midwife to speak to if we can't contact ours xx

    I've tried contacting my community midwife. It's a midwife liason team based at Whiston hospital. They usually put me through to someone. But I can't get hold of anyone.
    The problem is I'm not actually giving birth at that hospital. I could contact my hospital as they have a day assessment unit. But I don't really want to go in if I can help it. (My daughters got a temp/cold). Xx
