Should I be worried

I'm 24w4d and for the last hour and half I've been having mild period pains accompanied by back ache and tightenings low down. The pains aren't painful but they are enough for me to stop what I'm doing. There every 2-10 minutes but only last a few seconds whereas the back pain lasts a few minutes. I remember my daughters labour and it started off similar to this.

Should I wait and see what happens or should I contact MW for advice

Contact your mw. Nobody ever regrets calling them....

The pain has subsided for now but the back ache is still on and off. MW is not picking up at the minute

I think you should go to your maternity ward at your nearest hospital. Midwives are hard to get hold of esp on a Friday aft? Unless it is her mobile number/emergency number. I hope everything is okay.

Sending you lots of hugs xxx

Call. Could be a wee infection irritating uterus.

Well spoke too soon. Pains are back and they seem to last a little longer. I'm gonna hold off and see if they intensify and go from there

I would get checked out. You won't regret going in for a quick monitor! And they won't say you are time wasting!

Go get checked.

I would get checked out. Even if the pain does go away, please get checked.

Hope all is okay.

Please go and get checked out. They would much rather you did that than worried at home. flowers

Please go and get checked - you're not going to get anyone on here who realistically is going to tell you not to. You're at the stage now where they will want to intervene where possible and will see you on delivery suite/triage.

I really want to but because the pain is only mild I'm worried they won't take me seriously or try and brush it off as braxton hicks. I know it's not BH as I've had them since 16 weeks and with that it's just all over tightening no pain whatsoever

you're nearly 24+4 wks, and you know its not braxton hicks, sod the midwife, go to the maternity unit, it is too early to wait and see, you need to go asap.

Hope all's well OP flowers

Update. It eased off after a few hours yesterday but started again today but more painful so I'm on my way in to be monitored. Will update when I'm back home

Good luck..

I hope everything has worked out ok

Andysgirl15 Mon 05-Sep-16 20:51:47

Sorry about late reply. Everything came back fine. Blood pressure slightly low but they aren't concerned. They have no clue what caused the pain and it hasn't happened since so hopefully it was just a muscle thing.

Haggisfish Mon 05-Sep-16 21:46:37

That's good.
