Hi Ladies. Since yesterday morning I've been having very strong cramps in my lower abdomen followed by aching which is in my lower back also. Yesterday lunchtime I came home from work because it was painful just walking up/down stairs, getting out of my seat and even just shifting position sat down. I called my midwife who said as long as I not bleeding there is nothing to worry about but this pain is horrible at times and I have a fairly high pain threshold thanks to having ovary cysts in the past I'm used to bad cramping...but this is much worse. I read online about ligament cramps/ stretching and I hope this is the cause but is it usually this painful...has anyone else experienced anything similar? I'm just scared something bad is happening and I feel really isolated at home on my own.
