Ok - so I'll be 35weeks tomorrow. DS1 was born at 35 due to PE. This time, I've managed to get away without it (BP is high but no other signs of it returning at this stage).
Thursday night I was woken with stomach cramps and intense lower back pain... like I needed to do #2. I tried and wasn't able to go. I was actually getting worried because I had read that contractions can start like that. I eventually managed to fall back asleep to be woken again with the same issue. It eventually went away and I was good for a few days.
This morning I was watching my DS and DH swimming when I started getting cramps and back pain again. By the end of class it was so intense I told my hubby to just go home (we had planned on doing a bit of shopping whilst out). On the way home (approx 20 min drive) it got sooo bad I was shaking and feeling nauseaus. Again, tried to go dunny when I got home with no luck, but the position seemed to help. Lay down on the couch and the pain eventually went away. All up, it was probably lasted about an hour. It hasn't come back, but I still get the occasional twinge in my back.
I told myself if the pain was still as bad when we got home I'd ring the hospital, but as it had started easing, and has now gone away, I feel silly ringing them.. plus I'd have no idea who I would ring.
In between I still get the usual BH and still feel bubby moving which is good.
Has anyone else experienced this?
