I'm 32 and 3 days and have had for the past 4 hours tightening across the top of my bump and back pain from waist height downwards. Neither pain is really painful, just uncomfortable, and they come about every 15 mins or so. Just off to have a bath to see if that makes any difference - should I ring the hospital or not? The baby seems to be moving quite a bit too?

Probably just Braxton Hicks practice contractions? Can you call your midwife just to reassure yourself? x

Yep, definitely sounds like BH. Does exercise help?
