35 weeks pregnant today and the past hour I've had the worst back ache and period like cramps, has anyone else experienced this ? i have rang the hospital but they said to see how I go on and the famous words 'were not worried'

That's pretty much how every labour started for me with my babies - back ache and period cramps. 24 hours later I was holding babe in arms smile.

I had this on and off for weeks before going into labour (with a dramatic Hollywood style pop of the waters). Try not to worry too much and get as much rest as you can

Oh really, had to be on my hands and knees on my birthing ball 😫 Just keeps coming on and off! Just hope it isn't straight away but scared of just been 35 weeks

35 weeks is fine op. My DS was 35+1, 7lb 4oz and no problems.
Good luck!

Oh that makes me feel a bit better he was estimated at 5 pound 5 ounce at my growth scan 3 weeks ago so hopefully if he's trying to make an appearance he will be okay 😊

Ooh gosh OP! Any sign of show or streaky discharge?

Yesterday I had some mucous discharge it was pretty stringy had to wear a pad but I didn't think anything of it

Hmm...I'm 35+4 and have been having period type pain like in the first trimester for the last week.

I didn't think much of it as I thought that you might get more achey again towards the end.

I've got MF app on Thu and will ask her.
I got a bit worried now.

It is my 3rd but for the life of me can't remember if I was this achey with the other two.
It was 12 years ago.

I hadn't it in the first trimester but with my first I can't remember these sorts of pains and aches with her this late on

35+6 here and have had this for a week now! How are you op?

Bethany0903 Tue 18-Apr-17 08:13:22

Still having it not as bad but still there, got a consultant Friday so I'll mention it then but if it gets worse I'll ring the hospital back..

I think the advice is usually if 2 paracetamol and a bath helps then it's probably not labour. Though how you are supposed to get in and out of the bloody bath I don't know.

Great now I have diarrhoea and sickness as well as extremely bad back pain and stomach cramps 😭 Don't know what's going on 😭

Your in labour girl

Sounds like early labour to me too - good luck!

I had this when i was 35 weeks (am 38 now!) it was pretty bad and got worse and worse over the course of 5 days. By the 4th day I felt like i really had to contact triage and they invited me in to be monitored which did make me feel more at ease..they found that I was experiencing intense braxton hicks and that all of the pain was the baby dropping lower into my pelvis. They explained that a-lot of nerves muscles are being stretched & tightened which explained the pain i was in, i was just told to go home with a hot water bottle and see if it would turn into anything! It's gone away now so i like to think it has made my soon-to-be labor a little easier wink
