Hi im 39 weeks pregnant with 2nd child and today been having really painful cramps and backache. Baby been in engaged since 34 wks. But sounds stupid but with my daughter i was induced at 37 wks so i dont know what its like to go into labour naturally? No 'show' and baby not moving much at all today. These pains nearly make my eyes water lol. Happening atleast 6 times an hour. Been in bath, taken paracetmol and codine (given by midwife) just wondering if its something of nothing or not???xx

Have you spoken to anyone about your head ache? Headache and sickness can be a sign of pre eclampsia.

I always bang on about PE because it really took me by surprise and came on very quickly.

I'm 34 weeks and I get lots of tightenings, back pain and cramps. They are far more uncomfortable than the Brixton hicks I had with my daughter but I know I will know when it's a contraction. It does sound like your body is preparing though so keep doing all the things to help move it on (walking, curry, sex :-) ) xx

I think you should phone your midwives team and tell them that you have been having headaches and sickness and baby hasn't moved much and let them check you over. Probably nothing to worry about just you and the baby preparing for the birth, but do check.

It sounds like early stages of moving into labour, rest and eat as much as you can to make sure you have the energy you need for later.

Ditto KK123 -

I'm 39+2 with no.1 and got all excited this morning when I had period-like cramps with tight braxton hicks every five minutes. Went for a walk and BH continued regularly along with a stitch-like feeling in lower abdomen... but 2 hours on, now nothing :-s

False alarm?!
