    It is probably something very innocent like a pulled ligament or something dodgy you have eaten, but on the offchance it is not I would advise you to go to the maternity unit for a quick assessment, or at the very least call your midwife of OB to describe exactly what is happening. A period type pain in pregnancy could indicate early labour and it's not something you should ignore

    any period style pain i would call my care-provider as a heads up to make sure that it's nothing to worry about.

    I agree with the other gals. It is probably just ligament pain but I would phone your care provider just to double check. I've phoned them for all sorts of things so don't feel you can't call.

    I agree with the others too.

    I get period type pains a lot with this pregnancy, but they are associated with my BH's and suspected irritable uterus, though I did have 2 real contractions the other night after those period like pains - thankfully nothing came of them - so I just have to keep a record of when I get them and how often for my midwife.



    Hope everything is ok.
