Last night I woke up at about 2am with really bad cramps. They were like intense period pains, and literally bought tears to my eyes. Baby was moving, which added to the discomfort, so I wasn't too concerned (thought it might be food poisoning). They lasted about half an hour. I did wonder whether they were braxton hicks but I thought these were not meant to be painful?? This morning I still had slight discomfort, but it is no where near as bad. Baby is still moving about, and I have had no spotting or anything else. I can't get in touch with my midwife or Dr till Monday (am due to see my midwife then anyway) and as I no longer have the pains I feel that a&e isn't really an option. Does anyone else get bad pains at night? I always am sore in the mrning anyway.
