Period cramps update!

(21 Posts)
Mummytobee2012 Sun 21-Oct-12 22:36:55

Okay, so i've been having regular period pain cramps since roughly 5pm tonight, they started off every 20 minutes and have been every 10-12 since about 7pm. Im 35+2. These aren't my braxton hicks, as these feel completely different. They've become weird now, my whole abdom hurts with them and i feel sick, ive had to go for a wee about 6 times in the last hour, and i constantly need feel as if i need a wee. I had a bit of a show about 5-6 days ago, but nothing since, my back is agonizing and the pain isn't getting better if i move or change position! Help or advice? Please?

also i have alot of pressure in my vagina, like shooting pain every now and again, my son is moving but not as much- However i have felt 10 movements today!

Hmm sounds a lot like early labour to me. Can you ring your Maternity Unit and speak to Labour Ward?

Mummytobee2012 Sun 21-Oct-12 22:42:05

Yea i can. I was going to leave it till the morning and ring the doctor.. :S

Im starting to need a number 2 badly (Sorry for TMI) And when i feel my stomach during these pains its not hard :S also during the pain i can feel the pressure on my pelvis and bottom :S

sounds like labour... could you relax in a bath for a bit?

Please phone the labour ward.

The Maternity Unit is open 24/7. If you are in early labour it's better not to leave it as you're only 35 weeks and baby might need a bit of help if he comes early. Best to ring I think.

Definitely call the labour ward, it sounds like early labour to me. They won't mind that it's not during 9-5! smile It might be that you have to wait until the contractions are closer together as 10mins is still quite far apart, but because you are less than 37wks they may want to see you. Good luck!smile

It does sound like early labour. You need to phone your maternity unit now, so that they can make sure everything is okay.
Is someone with you?
