    I have had them for a few hours coming and going very low down in my pelvis as well as strange movements not sure if its baby or BH, also some shooting pains across my tummy and pelvic pain. I'm prob worrying over nothing but could this be onset of preterm labour?

    Coulg be. If you're contracting make sure you're timing them. Drink loads of water and if it doesn't subside and keeps bothering you in an hour, I'd call the doctor or mw.

    Even if it turns out to be round ligament pain, it's best to be safe. x

    It could be - but it is also quite normal. Try to relax or distract yourself from it and see if it gets better or worsens.

    I had similar pains late 2nd tri/early 3rd, doc said it's normal but checked my cervix just in case and all was fine. For peace of mind I would call in or see the doc, just to make sure.
