    Default does this sound normal

    hey all just wondering if you can help me out. i am 32 weeks and i am having massive pains and tightenings and my whole body is so sore. it all just feels strange mind you i have 2 other kids but still cant remember much to what the pain feels like. my partner has been sick and i thought it might have been me getting sick but as he pointed out if i had a normal belly ache it would be more then likely constant not coming every 20 to 25 mins. i tried to go and lay down and sleep which i did a bit of but i tried the whole lay on your left side and see waht happens got heaps of them then just wondering if anyone else has had it and if its normal

    hey there,

    i was the same as that just a day before i gave birth. But to me they sound like simi contractions or they can be BH but it doesnt sound like it.

    If you are worried please go see a doctor or just go in to your local hospital or the one your booked in to and ask them to put you on a baby heart monitor to see if your in early days of labor.

    Let me know how you go!

    I had similar hot and cold sweats, entire body aches, then the coming and going pain in the abdomen...

    Turned out to be a UTI, and I went down hill after the birth of my daughter as my liver and kidney had stopped functioning properly.

    I went to the hospital and they took bloods and urine sample, rang them a day later and asked for results, apparently still didnt have them back, it wasnt until AFTER I had DD that I got back the results after constantly having to ask.....

    I'd get checked out by your doctor just to be safe!

    i did see my midwife today this morning and i had had the pains all night. i got up at around 620 this morning to check on my other kids when i got out of bed i could hardly walk at all everything pretty much gave way.
    in the last 40mins i have started getting pain down below as of this morning bubs wasnt engaged down but not engaged. i have also had a lot of the pain start heading towards my back i get pains all through my belly and then when they start to go they end in my lower back.
    one more question if you are naturally fat and you feel a tightening but your tummy still has your fat rolls does that mean its real or should your whole tummy have no fat rolls, sounds like i am putting myself down but i know i am big but the midwife told me i have natural fat so she made me feel worse.
    thanks for your help i will lay down for a little bit longer time them to the exact point and then give my midwife a call and yes i will let you all know what happens

    Depends on your body is okay to have a few little puppy rolls of fat or be tight it really doesnt matter depends on the person really. To be quite honest it does sound like labor. But then you say bub isnt in the position could it be that your bub isnt in the position but is ready? Not quite sure if that can happen but i remember when my sister was pregnant she was in labor but bub wasnt even in position.. If the pain gets that bad then they might as you to go in for a c-section or try and work out the problem. Hope you and bub is all well

    Default I agree

    Hello!
    I agree with previous posters that it would be best for you to go to your hospital or doctor and be checked out- It is better to be safe than sorry and especially during pregnancy. I have had 5 children and I still went in to be checked over when I was having some pains I didn't feel familiar with. As far as baby being in position, or engaged, if you have already had previous pregnancies, you will find you are more likely to go into labour without bubs head being engaged. I think the only one I was engaged with before labour began was my first baby. Think of it this way- Your uterus has been a home to other babies, so never quite goes back to its previous state. Your new baby has more space to move around in, thus it can take a little longer to head in the right direction lol. My fifth treasure waited until the day they were going to manually turn her, to decide to even face the right direction! Anyway, ease your fears by asking as many questions as you feel you need to, even if you think they are silly, and get a thorough check up, even if you have to push for it- You know your body better than any doctor or midwife:-)

    i went to the doctors and they said that the cervix is closed so it cant be labour but that could change anytime. i would of had to go to melbourne as they dont deliver before 34 weeks here so glad i wasnt rushed off then
    i will just wait and see what happens and if it gets worse i will go back i am hoping not i hate the duck beck things
