Period like cramps... 33 weeks and now in hospital (update pg 3)


I am almost 33 weeks and for the past 24 hours I have had a niggling period like cramping, mostly in my right hand side but occassionally in my left too.

Is this normal???

sounds like it could be Braxton hicks or just some tightenings. Call your MW if you're not sure

I've been getting that feeling on and off for a few weeks now. I also get braxton hicks.

If the feeling becomes too intense I would go to the hospital.

Thanks ladies... I don't have a midwife yet as just changed doctors (due to issues of not seeing a midwife other than at my 20 week scan and having to go to the hospital for an appointment).

They are not intense, just uncomfortable and very much like bad period pains (I don't really get many period pains, but when I do it is usually when I am due to have a bad period).

The period type pains I get aren't very intense, and I wouldn't consider them "bad" either, to be honest.

I don't want to scare you, but my contractions I had when I went into premature labor felt like bad period cramps when they first began (I was in labor for 1 /12 days without knowing). If I were you, to be on the safe side, I would at least call your Doctor or hospital and see what they think about it.

Would I call my closest hospital or the one where I will be having her?

I just feel a bit silly phoning about some cramps when everything else seems fine.

Even without a MW a hospital should see you.
Hopefully its just BH and nothing more.

Could be baby engaging. But as said, contact midwife/ doctor / hospital for advice.
