It could just be normal aches and pains of pregnancy. When you're having a growth spurt it can feel like menstrual cramps sometimes.

How bad are they and how long have you had them?

Are they just like normal period pains? If they are stronger than a normal period pain you should definitely call your midwife for advice, or if you are very worried it's always worth a call the be reassured.

I've been having some of those but I am HOPING they are the start of labour. No such luck yet, though.

I had some menstrual-like aching around your stage, think it was baby having a growth spurt. Obvioulsy it wasn't pre-term labour for me back then.

I started getting really bad cramps, very much like severe period pains about 32 weeks and still no sign of baby so fingers crossed its nothing for you to worry about.I went to hosp the first time it happened as the pain was so prolonged and intense, i got the catch all response of 'its just one of those things'...

I also had these pains at the weekend. All friday night I was up with period cramp. My midwife told me today not to worry, though if they are severe to always ring and talk to someone x

I was getting these last week all over the weekend and the OB called me in to get checked out.

He said my cervix was still nice and shut but Autumn had gone to +1 station and that heavy period pending crampy feeling was the pressure.
