strong period pain cramps at 34 weeks


Hi Girls,

For the last couple of days i have been having quite painful period type cramps on my right hand side painful enough to be taking paracetamol quite requarly. I had a scan on friday which showed everything was going well but i dont remember this pain with my son.

What do you think?

I have these, like i need to go for a poo really bad but when i go theres nothing. I've been told its ligaments stretching...round ligament pain can often feeel like a dull ache ( mines more like a crampy ache ) but everything is fine.... These cramps are apparently common around our stage and sometimes are associated with braxton hicks! sorry if i'm not much help

thanks, ive been reading on google (stupid i know!!) And its says can be a sign of very early labour which can go on for weeks but it also say in some cases it can be were the placenta is coming away from the lining this panics the hell out of me as this is what happened with my son at 37 weeks but i never got this pain. ( i had a scan a week before with him and it showed all was fine aswell!!) It really dosent feel like contractions as there is no tightening just quite severe pain in my rh side enough to take my breath away it is worse when i stand up aswell!

Thanks but i never had any pain when this happened with my son the only reason i knew was because i had reduced movements but this little one is very quite most of the time ( but she has been moving today). Im probably just being paranoid will see how i feel in the morning as i am under strict intructions not to risk anything after last time. As apparently abruptions cant be picked up on a normal ultrasound so im having a specialist scan on 6th may to check blood flow etc... think now its getting closer to the problems i had last time im starting to worry more!

i guess theres lots of scary things that can happen and not everyone has same symptoms, but the internet is terrible! i scared myself last night looking up rashes coz i had itchy burning arms, i try to ban myself from googling but when i feel a pain the first thing i do is grab the laptop
its not surprising your worrying after what happend before, but im sure your fine hun
