Trapped wind type pain all over bump

Hi ladies.

For past few hours I have had trapped wind type pain all over my bump that was at first constant but is now coming and going. It definitely isn't trapped wind though. Anyone had anything similar? I'm 36 + 4

I had that in the hours before I gave birth. grin

Any chance you're in early labour?

Ahhhh! Well sadly not no sad pain has completely gone now x

Hmmm. Braxton hicks? I had practically none in my first pregnancy but this one my uterus is training like it's going for gold the childbirth Olympics.

Glad you're not in pain any more. I told my DH about this thread last night as I was wondering if it was early labour for you. He realised you're only 6 weeks ahead of us and it hit him how soon we'll have DC2 here, freaked him right out! smile

I was thinking braxton hicks I don't think I've had them yet but it sounds like it could be that. Every period type cramp or anything is making me think "oo is this it?!" Even though everyone tells me you will definitely know!!

Aw bless your dh. I'm still waiting for even a slight "wow it's so close!!" off mine but he's so chilled out which is good, but at the same time I'm like "come join me freaking out over here!!!"

Personally I agree with the 'You'll just KNOW' thing, but I've known women who would disagree.

I had some small denial first time round, kept waking up, getting on to hands and knees to breathe through it, then going back to sleep. Cos it'll pass right, I can't be having a baby RIGHT NOW?!

I'm having a freak out at getting everything ready. We saved the decorating for now so we'd have something to focus on other than X weeks left. Regretting that now.

Haha really? Did you have a good first birth?

We did nursery at about 30 weeks but I wasn't allowed to help, not cause he's a gent just cause he said I'd mess it up...haha.

I'm just 30 weeks and I have started to get this a lot. I've put it down to Braxton hicks but I don't know- didn't have it in my last pregnancy anyway!

It might be labour starting as you're closer than me smile

I used to get the most incredible pain all around my bump in the middle of the night at times on my last baby. It was trapped wind I think but because of being still had gotten so painful I could barely move. Usually if I managed to shift to a good position, it would ease but sometimes I would be squealing in the middle of the night asking DH to roll me over because the pain was so bad I couldn't move myself!

coneywonder Mon 15-Jun-15 17:25:13

Ah yeah thinking about it I have had that too cherryblossoms!! I sleep in a very strange position because of my spd and have to constantly change from side to side because of leg cramps and a few times I've woken up to change position and had that type of pain.

I'm hoping it's start of labour even if it does take a few days to get going. I would like to be in the 'safe zone' for when dc comes.

Bloody terrified really ha

First birth was fine, bit slow so had some interventions but came through with no issues. I'm terrified too. Think it's normal.

Here's me this morning posting 'you'll know' and now I'm sat on the couch wondering if I need to go get checked. BH and back pain. DH has been told to 'stop watching me'. Poor bugger. Doesn't help that he came home today to find I'd 'nested'.

YY to leg cramps. You done the thing where you slam your foot flat onto something cold to stop them? I sleep next to my wardrobe and when I wake up now I just whack the flat of my foot against it and it stops. My friend's mum told me this at 34 weeks last time, I hugged her next time I saw her.

coneywonder Mon 15-Jun-15 22:31:44

Haha wow I'm going to try that! I sleep next to wardrobe too so its game on tonight if I get the cramps!!

How often have you been having the back pain? Are the bh painful? I don't know what help I'd be cause I don't have a clue but fingers crossed it's your body warming up earlier for the big day!!

Bair Mon 15-Jun-15 22:38:36

Only had the back pain twice, rest were just strong BH I hope. Just shows, you think you've done it before and you know what you're doing and mother nature has a little laugh at your expense.

I love my wardrobe. I find the cramps are worse during the heat, plenty of water apparently helps.
