    I've had some slight pains low down since Sunday but they have been tolerable. Since last night I have had period type pains and lower back ache.

    I'm not too worried but just want to know if you think I should call the Mat Unit and mention it to them at all? Or is this entirely normal for 33 weeks? :?

    The periody pains were enough last night to make me take A paracetemol (yes, just one I have made a point of avoiding ANY meds during this pregnancy lol).

    I feel so tired too... :sleep:

    I think it's normal hun, just your body getting ready. If it gets worse or your really worried there's no harm in ringing the midwife to reasure you.

    Aw hun :( :hug:

    (I know how you feel re taking any drugs, when my earache was so bad I took 6 paracetamol, and I think I was more upset about that then I was about the pain :lol: - with DD I only took 2 paracetamol the whole pregnancy and the m/w's gave me those when I was in labour!)

    Keep an eye on it, and it can't hurt to ring your midwife - even for a bit of reassurance :hug:

    I called and the nurse said to take 2 paracetemol and lay down and give it an hour and see if it goes. If not, tel call back as obviously the worry is prem labour (scary). Taken 2 tabs and going to rest for an hour now and see how it goes... Will update in a bit (or Matt will!)

    Tiggs... text me when you have called too xxx

    Hiya, how you feeling now? I've been experiencing the same thing too :? Mine's died down a bit this morning but if it returns I'm going to call the MW too to see what they suggest.

    Hope you are okay, Debbie. I have had period pains recently aswell and quite bad shooting pains 'inside' if you know what I mean, have had lots more leakage too but am too scared to call cause they always make me feel silly :oops: I'm seeing the Midwife in an hour so will ask for her advice. Hope you are feeling better :hug:

    Weird we are all experiencing the same things. I still feel as I did around 11am so I am going to go with Matt to take Barney for a quick walk then decide how I feel when I get back after some fresh air. If I still feel like this then I will ring the MU again and see what they say...

    It's weird. I'm ok when I'm standing up and walking (apart from SPD pain as usual), but when I am sat down I feel crampy again. I don't understand it.... :roll:
