I have been having period type pains and the odd tightening for the past week now and its getting a pain. The pains wake me up in the night and im not sleeping well, i need my sleep as i have 3 weeks of work left yet before i can leave! The period pains over the past two days have got worse. Should i be worried about prem labour or do you think its normal? Also the baby has her legs tucked up under my rib constantly and pushes all the time, the midwife has said she is a bit too small but she feels like shes running out of room. Will this rib shoving stop when she drops down to engage? She is very high at the mo with her bum stuck up!!
