Hi, I have been really uncomfortable for the past 7 hours,with pain very low down in my groin & what feel like i imagine contractions feel like,a lot of tightening. i dont really know what to do with myself,ive gone back to bed & taken paracetamol in the hopes that i will sleep it off.
Any tips other than hydration & lying on your left side,that seems to be suggested a lot on google.
I have never felt like this in my pregnancy before & since its my first i have nothing to compare it with but I guess i would know if i was in in real labour rather than false labour,wouldnt i ?!!
I had mild labour pains for weeks due to the high fluid levels. Braxton hicks are more on and off then lasting 7 hours.
It could be a bladder or kidney infection, i would ring OLOL and see what they say. They might ask you to come in to stick on a monitor for an hour or so and a urine sample to rule out infection.
Let us know how you get on, hope it clears up soon x
Hi again,pains went after sleep so am feeling better.am going for my 32 week check up tomorrow so will mention it then & they were talking about maybe scanning me again as they said im measuring abit big so hopefully they will be happy with my bump,thanks again for all your good advice
