I am going to talk to the midwife after I finish work but I just wanted to know what you all think it is or what I can do to help it.

I am currently 30+4 and since last night been experiencing shooting pains down there and tightening on my bump. The tightening on my bump isn't painful but the shooting pains are killing me. I'm also getting horrible headaches which paracetamol hasn't took the pain off of either.

I'm at work till 6 so want to hear what people think so I'm not over thinking all this.

Even though I can't be that much help because I only just got my BFP, I didn't want to just read and run. I would just tell your midwife everything that is going on and if you feel she isn't taking your concerns seriously see your GP.
Sorry I couldn't be more help.

Sounds like lightening crotch and braxton hicks which are totally normal. But if unsure, give the midwife a call.

Hope you get advice/support from midwife op.

Hi, I'm 25 years old and wanting to start a family but I am scared of pregnancy and childbirth Because I had an emergency laparotomy two years ago due to a gunshot wound to the stomach. I am very lucky to be alive and only needed bowel and small intestine surgery. I lost 22cms in one area and 15 in the other. I have been told that due to my surgery I would be considered a high risk pregnancy not only for the scar ( rupture) but also inside. I haven't been given much information about the internal risks only about the scar itself.. I want to weigh up the risks that are involved as I want to fall pregnant but my family and partner do not want me risking my health again as they all have been through enough and so have I but I don't want fear to stop me from becoming a mum. Please help if you can with some of the potential risk outcomes or any personal experience. It will be much appreciated. Thank you
