    Default 34.3 weeks, worried about symptoms

    I am 34.3 weeks and I'm a bit worried about some symptoms I have been having. I have had increasing groin pain/pressure for a week now, as another person described it, its basically like I've been kicked down there! Like the bones are bruised. When I had my u/s at 34 weeks the sonographer did say bubs head is very low. I had BH contractions, probably 6 out of 10 on a pain level and consistently for about an hour, every few minutes last night. I got up and moved about and tried to ignore them and that seemed to help. Also I have had increased discharge, of which some is very stringy and mucousy (sorry TMI)... DH wanted to DTD last night and I was too worried :|

    I tried to call my midwife today just to let her know and see if I am being over concerned but her phone is off at the moment. Would appreciate some opinions on if this is normal and just my body getting ready for the coming weeks or if I should be concerned? Thanks x

    Hi sarelou - Keep trying to get a hold of your midwife. It cant hurt to check with her esp if you are worried.

    I had similar groin/pubic bone pain when my baby moved from breech to heads down. I still cant touch the outside of my pubic bone - it kills! I havent really had any change in discharge for as long as i can remember. My BH arent too painful, mainly uncomfortable, but saying that i only just realised yesterday that they were BH!

    Im not sure if any of your symptoms are normal or not but i wanted to send you a big . Try not to worry yourself. Hopefully the midwife can ease your mind.

    Hi hun, are you still getting the BH? Are they regular? The pelvic pain i dont think is too much of a worry but the other thing i would say yes. Does the BH go away when you change activity, maybe try a warm bath and panadol and if it does not go....just get your self checked...rather safe.

    I have had groin pain from about 33 weeks. I wasn't sure what it was, but a friend pointed out it was SPD. Does it hurt to life your leg if you are getting dressed, and hurt when you roll over in bed and stand up? I find it's like somebody has punched me in the groin, and the pain varies.

    I also found my discharge quite bad around 33 or 34 weeks.

    I'm not sure about the braxton hicks though, as I don't think I've had any yet (I'm 36 weeks tomorrow, but never felt them with my son either).

    I agree about chatting to the midwife.

    Thanks for your replies ladies. I did end up getting in touch with my middy and she said its all ok, and to be expected. She thinks bubs head is probably starting to engage which is why I'm getting the groin pain. I don't think it's SPD as its only been the last week. The BH do go away when I change activity but they can be quite painful at times! Sometimes I only notice a tightness and it's uncomfortable, other times it's like constant period pain. Oh well, at least I can have faith that my body and baby are getting prepared I guess! x
