    I feel like that right now, my bump is so uncomfortable. I know he's not engaged so don't imagine its a prelabour. Sign for me just yet.

    I get them on and off and have the whole pregnancy, things stretch etc... and BH can feel like AF cramps as well :) Everything was fine with me and I am not going into labor atm so I wouldn't worry too much ladies :D

    Ive had crampy type pains like as if im going to come on too, and mentioned it to midwife at an appointment who said it was just stretching muscles and ligaments and the weight of the baby so yes, its normal. its bound to feel a but uncomfortable when you think about it...the womb expands a LOT during pregnancy!!

    good post ladies, I have been felling like this a little (I am 28 weeks) I figured it was stretching etc but it is nice to know others are experiencing this feeling as wel.

    I have had this feeling a few times in pregnancy. im 27 weeks and 3 days. It never lasts more than a day and its on and off. It seems normal to me. If your worried call your midwife.
