Back ache, tummy ache, leg ache?


I've had back ache (like just at the beginning of a period) for a little while now. It also makes me feel like I need to go to the loo. My Mum reckons it's the head engaging (and sure enough the head has started to engage). Over the last day or so, I've had this pain but worse - yesterday was quite bad, it happened alot and was accompanied by lower tummy ache and achey legs. It all feels just like period pain. I don't think I'm having contractions as although the pain does go away, only after an extended period of time, and I can't see a pattern. Also I assumed a contraction would be felt all over my tummy. And also I can't feel it today.

The thing is I just looked up 'contractions' on Google and the description seemed to be close to what I've been experiencing. I'm just over 37 weeks and I haven't had a show. I'm still thinking the head engaging theory is a good one. How about you guys? Are Crampy period pains the sort of thing you've all experienced late on but while not in labour?

Ive been experiencing back pain, muscle pain and aching-ness all over my tummy for the past week now. My thighs hurt like im having a painful period and i have increased pressure in my bottom. I tend to have muscle spasms in my groin area quite often and i ache just above my bump but under my ribs... i guess my bh don't help either. its not very nice and today, Im feeling rather sorry for myself if I'm honest. I dread bed time because i cant sleep x

Hiya hun, Im just over 37 too and am having EXACTLY the same symptoms. Feels like a really heavy period and tops of thighs achy, lower back achy and really crampy. Apparantly its cervix softening, head engaging and generally our bodies getting ready xxx

Aha, thanks ladies. It's all so confusing. They say you'll know when it's a real contraction, but then I go and confuse myself by using Google. I should know better.

Hope you guys feel better soon. I have to say I felt pretty rubbish yesterday and in the night, but feel much better today.
