    I am 37 weeks today. I went in for monitoring on Friday because of high bp (which I have been watching myself as I don't technically have a mw,long story). That seemed to resolve itself and I did explain I had had an increase of Braxton hicks and crampy back pain. I have had a small bit of clear mucus in the last 2 weeks but not a complete show.
    Yesterday I was having the cramps on/off all day and most of the night but eased. I have had cramping today but this evening it seems to have ramped up a notch and is quite painful. Baby is wriggling and moving ALOT more and the pain in my back when he does is getting to be a lot. Is this a normal thing or should I be ringing hospitals etc just incase? Any info would be much appreciated xxx

    Monitor the contractions and if they're coming regularly and 5-10 mins apart then ring your hospital. Try taking some paracetamol and having a bath to try and ease them.
    I'm 37 weeks today aswell and have had niggly pains almost every night for the past week but they've just been Braxton hicks xx
