    As the title suggests im really worried that something is wrong.
    I went to sleep last night all was fine i was woken up at around 3:30am with extreme stomach cramps they were like period cramps but more painful and kind of took my breath away. They were coming and going in waves.
    I went to the bathroom and sat on the toliet- i was trying not to freak out and thought it could be trapped wind or constipation? I did pass something and the cramps stopped and i went back to sleep.. I woke up again just before my alarm and they started again. I'm now sat at work and have just had another lot of cramps- any ideas what they could be?
    I've not had any bleeding...just hope my baby is okay in there!

    Have you got a number for the midwife so you can have a chat to her on the phone, she can hint towards what it may be and a remedy to use that is safe if it is to do with BM (or lack of) x

    It does sound like tramped wind but to ease your mind you could call your midwife and just see what she says. When i has a scare they were very understanding and even though sauid everythign would be fine still let me go in and see them just to check the heart beat and things just for my own worries.

    I think it sounds like bowl issues, but defo call if your worried. Often a simple chat can ease your mind. Do you have a doppler? Hearing baby would make you feel better? Maybe the midwife could squeeze you in for a 5 min listen. Dont panick unless you have reason too :)
