Tightenings

Discussion in 'Pregnancy - Third Trimester' started by Always&4ever, Apr 26, 2009.

  1. Since about 1pm, my stomach keeps tightening up and it really hurts, I can't get hold of my midwife and Rich is away, should I just take some paracetomol and see how it goes, I got braxton hicks with Jasmine, but they wernt like this

    If it was me I would try the MW again or the hospital and ask. Hope you're OK

    I would time them in the meantime hun, if theres a definite pattern then theres a good chance there labour contractions, if there really random at different intervals then there more likely to be Braxton Hicks, try a fat drink of water too that could help, good luck xxx

  6. I took some paracetomal and its eased but still there. I've got hold of midwife and she said to have a rest and if its still happening in a couple of hours, I have to go hospital :(
