ARGH! Today i keep getting pains in my back, as if I have tried to lift something too heavy, kind of crampy and stabby at the same time. Don't think they are contractions, and they seem different to the normal pain I get (I have a trapped nerve in my leg which causes pain practically everywhere). For some reason it feels like if I found a good position to sit/stretch in, it would be better. The pain is kind of along my lower spine. I have some codeine prescribed to me, but the doctor told me only to use it as a last resort. Any suggestions? The pains are getting more severe each time, and I'm not doing anything to provoke them.
I'm 35 weeks today. DD came at 36 weeks, and the midwife is pretty convinced this one will be early as well.
I think I will try a bath actually, I wasn't going to, since DP is out and I get scared of getting stuck in there if I do go into labour, but he is only round the corner at his mums.
Is cat pose where you go on all fours and arch your back? I think I will do that as well.
I think I may have done something to my back last night now I come to think of it. DD fell out of bed, and I ran into her room and scooped her up in my arms without thinking, and so didn't do the whole bending at the knees thing, and she is a big heavy toddler who was a dead weight because she was too busy crying to help me lift her. Damn maternal instinct!
