    I've started having period like pains, hadn't really had them before in the pregnancy. Pretty sure that they are just growing pains as everything is stretching and growing - nothing to worry about :) x

    I've had this a lot too and have been told by a nurse and MW that as long as it's not accompanied with any bleeding or nasty discharge, then it's just a nice bit of stretching! Also it appears more as period-y like cramps when the baby is having a bit of a growth spurt apparently too.

    If I didn't know I was pregnant I would be sure my period is about to start. Feel so heavy at times!
