    Default Constant Period Pains

    For the last few days I have been getting these period type pains. They don't come and go and my belly doesn't tighten it just feels like I have my period. The pain is continuous and lasts for a couple of hours beforfe subsiding.

    I try not to let it get to me and tell myself it will go away soon but really after the first hour I start to panic and wonder if something is wrong.



    I have tried googling it but I just can't find anyone who has seemingly had the same thing so I'm hoping someone here can help. Is this normal???

    TIA

    Smudge I had that for the last three-four weeks of my pregnancy. Combined with bubs constantly grinding my cervix i remember it being none too pleasant.

    Being at only 31 weeks you may be best to ask about it, JIC, but I'm sure you'll be just fine.
    Good luck with the impending birth!

    I've had mild period pain type cramps on and off the last couple of weeks. It only lasts 10-15 minutes at a time and happens every couple of days or so.

    Hiya Smudgiesmum, I've been getting mild period type cramps occasionally and when I asked the midwife, in my case it was because bub's head is down and engaged so its causing stretching and stuff at the bottom of my uterus - hence the period type pains. But def bring it up with your doc.

    Thanks Sammy, Ill ask my midwife on Monday when I see her. I have only had them once this week so thats a plus, before now I was getting them every day.

    I know bubs head is down and she hasn't budged since week 26 (she must be comfy - not much of an acrobat more a kick boxer) so maybe it just depends on where exactly she is sitting at the time - sometimes she is so high I can't sit down others she is low and I carry my belly around but Ill def ask the midwife on Monday.
