    I had a bit of that the other day.

    It can be a sign of labour.

    I have had period cramps for over 3 weeks now. Nothing has come of them. My doctor said they were just another way my body was preparing for labor. My body obviously needs a lot of preparing and a lot of time!

    I've had them my entire pregnancy. Nothing serious, maybe they are Braxton Hicks?

    I had it around that time too. I think it is when LO is moving lower. Could also be an early sign of labor.

    I've had period pains all the way through! But maybe at your stage, its a sign of impending labour. Exciting! x

    I get them all the time..it can be a symptom of BH / labour or just the cervix dilating and effacing according to my midwife. It's so uncomfy..but I smile when I get it cos if my cervix is favourable tomorrow I get to get induced hehe :) xx
