    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 morning anyway. I am expecting to be told they are stretching pains (this is always the explanation for everything)

    i felt like that on thurs and put up with it till hubby got home at 6 then went to hospital they said my cervix was thinning and i was a bout 1 cm coz she could poke bubs head with one finger so im presuming that the pain was me dilating as most people would do and carry on into labour.. my mum said she was the same every evening she would have these pains like strong BH and byt he time her waters broke two weeks later she was already 4 cm dilated when she got to hospital! so hopefukky i wud b the same!

    Well I had those kind of pains in my stomach but it happened at 3 months and from time to time on and off!!! I had very bad cramps in the stomach, like contractions but after that I would empty myself in the toilets.

    The one I have now almost every night and last time I was in tears it was so painful was cramps in my legs, from the bottom of the ankle to the bikini line and it lasts for ages. Last time, it lasted for at least 20 minutes and then if I was streching my leg a bit during the day, the cramp will reappear, not as strong but still there.

    I am going to tell my midwife on wednesday because it is very painful and would not fancy having this till due day lol

    Spoke to midwife, she thinks it could have been the baby turning in a difficult way or it could have been a reaction to something I ate. Baby is ok though (that's all I care about I guess). However she thinks I am developing SPD (something pubis disorder??-so have an appt with the physio and have to take it easy. Am worried though as she said if it gets too bad I'll have to be signed off sick, and that would mean my maternity leave would start well early (am 29 weeks next week). Will just have to see how it goes, unfortunetly there are stairs at work but will try and get around this.

    Great news Sasha,hopefully it won't be long now. Good luck hon!xxx
    Pradysso - how are you getting on? Hoping that the sweep did the trick xxx
