    I have been getting what i can only describe as like cramping pain like you would get with a period and lower backache with it aswell. I experienced this a couple of weeks ago when i was asleep in bed it started off with lower back pain then it seemed to travel onto my front and it felt like a really tight cramping feeling then it went within a few mins.

    I had it again last night and it woke me up i thought i was having a contraction but no sooner it came it went again within a couple of minutes but i'm not going to lie its not a nice feeling it does hurt :shrug:

    what could this be? braxton hicks? my uterus stretching pains? please help is this normal or should i contact my midwife

    Could be BH. but I've never experienced them. I would call your MW if you're worried.
    if there's no blood or anything, I'm sure it's normal, but always double check with the mid-wife.

    I used to get these aswell!! My doctor told me it was round ligament pain and completely normal!!

    Try not to stress yourself out to much, i know these are scary, but its just your uterus making room for the baba :D xxx

    The only reason i havent rang the midwife is because i experienced this a couple weeks ago and i had my 20 week scan yesterday and baby is fine and well and because i am not bleeding i know the midwife will not be worried as i had my scan yesterday and all was fine but it does worry me. I will keep an eye on it if get any more i will phone midwife x
