Mine are incredibly painful at times. Had a trip to the hospital because I actually thought I was in early labour.

Feels like period cramps, along with the tightenings of bh

They done a swab that determines whether labour will happen within 2 weeks, which came back negative so they weren't overly concerned.
Just told me to rest and take paracetamol for the pain, but paracetamol and pregnancy don't mix well with me so I just gotta grin and bear it

How far are you?

I get them quite often however got painful whilst I was in for reduced movement and swab come back positive and was admitted,

Was let out after 2 long days and told to watch if they come back to go straight back in as baby could come any time, although most probs end up with induction as baby's growths also declined 😩
