Ouch!! Stomach tightening...Help!!


For the past 12 hours ive had period pain cramps but in the past hour my stomach has started tightening. It only lasts a minute and then wears off but when it happens it hurts.

Im sure the baby is engaging also as all yesterday i had a pressure low down and his head feels lower when i lie on my back.

Could all this just be BH or should i be worried?

Have you rung your midwife?

Did you go anything strenuous? I find it always seems to make it worse when I have a mad round cleaning or something.

Not rang my mw cos dont want to look daft if its nothing. Havent done anything strenuous. Done nothing but relax.

The period cramps keeps coming and going along with the tightening. Timed the tightening and they seem to be every 4 mins but are only lasting a minute, probably not even that.

Im hoping its BH.

Probably BH's hun, I was due on sunday and have had regular periods of BH's where I will experience period tyoe cramps for anything up to 3 hours at a time. It gets frustrating because you think 'this could be it'. BUT... if pain starts to worsen and they get closer together def ring hospital. Try moving around as BH's will often wear off when you do and are a good way to determine whether they are real contractions or BH's. Real ones won't.

Take care hun,

Celine

Hiya... sounds like bh but I would ring your midwife anyway. That's what they're there for and better to be reassured.

Please call your midwife. I don't remember getting period type pain with the BH's. So that + they're every 4 minutes = Call the midwife! I don't think you're supposed to get more than 4-6 every hour.

Are you dehydrated?
