I've been having quite bad back ache on and off since Monday night, but assume it's just the load it's carrying and as baby is breech..

I haven't triggered something off have I blush I went into premature labour at 24weeks which was thankfully stopped with lots of drugs and bed rest.

Sorry for the stupid question! I'm going to get a shower or bath in a minute and see how I feel after that...

After the 24 week scare I would be tempted to call the Midwife service - they may want to check things out. Go for the bath rather than the shower - lying down may calm things down a bit.

I'll have a half hour soak in the bath now & call MW in an hour or so if things haven't calmed down, better to be safe & I guess it's what they're there for.
