Grab your notes and call Labour Ward. Don't go to A&E. Labour Ward will put you on a CTG monitor which will tell them if these are contractions or not. If they are they might give you something to calm it down.
I rang the hospital and th y told me to come in. But I didn't want to just yet. I had the feeling it was poop related. The pain was unreal (I've already had to labours and I might even say it was worse than them)
Anyway I then managed to poop. When I had finally got it all out I felt absolutely fine. I cannot believe the pain it caused when I wasn't sure what was going on. Today I went to the supermarket and stocked up on loads of fibre rich foods. I'm now terrified of it happening again.
Embarrassing story. But thanks for the help and concern xxxxx
