    Default Would you go to the doctor?

    Dd kicked me in the tummy the other night (I'm 25 wks) and it set off cramps. Throughout the night they moved to my back and yesterday my lower back was so sore that I couldn't make any sudden movements or bend. Today it's a bit better... I can bend, although it hurts. Bub has been moving as usual. I don't know whether to get it checked or just ride it out.

    I would get it checked out - I am pretty cautious though!

    When is your next regular check up?

    I would get it checked out for sure. Also, I can't believe you're 25 weeks already!

    I know, it has gone so fast!

    Thanks ladies, I'm the kind lf person that will have a splitting headache but won't take a panadol so I'm really dodgy about when I should actually do something

    Or at least ring the middies and see what they think. But it can't hurt to check it out

    That's what I decided to do, just waiting for them to call back

    I would definitely be calling the hospital and going into birth suite to get checked out because you've had abdominal trauma and then cramping at 25 weeks.

    Sometimes that's all it takes to set off pre-term labour......

    Just thought I'd update...
    The midwife called back and, after I explained everything, said she's not concerned as the back pain had been easing (it's practically gone today) and told me to come straight in if it failed to ease or got worse again.
