    Really? At 28 weeks? It's rather early for a doctor to be feeling to see where bub's head is. Usually they just check that baby is head down from 32 weeks, but don't pay attention to how 'low' baby's head is until 36+ weeks. However, light period pains for two days at 28 weeks gestation would be a good reason for a pregnant woman to ring the hospital she's booked in to and get checked out by a midwife.

    Cramping like period pains can sometimes be a sign of pre term labour. With your BH can you feel your tummy tighten if you put your hands on your belly? Does the cramping get worse with the BH? As a PP mentioned, take some paracetamol, pop on a heat pack and go to sleep. If the cramps don't go away/get worse/accompanied by any fluid loss, bleeding or decrease in your babies normal movements, call you hospital/midwife as you might need a once over. If they disappear completely then it's most likely normal pregnancy aches and pains. But if at any point you're not convinced it's normal, call your hospital/midwife. YOU need to know that everything is ok, and any doubt in YOUR mind is worth a check out. A mothers instinct is sometimes a lot stronger than we think.

    Cramping for two days with suspected BH / contractions should be enough to take you off to your OB or even hospital. I had similar at 24 weeks last pregnancy, with the pain radiating down my in to my thighs and around my back, not relieved by heat packs, panadol etc. At first I felt silly by taking myself off to the hospital with what I thought I was going to be told was BH.

    Turns out I was contracting due to a very large clot behind my placenta and it was serious. (Please don't let the story scare you, as it's not guaranteed by any means that it could be what is happening in your situation, but just an example of why you might want to get checked).

    Sounds like a good plan. Take some paracetamol and tuck yourself up with a heat pack. Here's hoping it all settles down and you can get some sleep

    If it helps, @BigMumma83, when bub was pressing on my cervix in a certain way, I definitely felt it in my clitoris and a couple of the girls in my DIG said the same thing. I think it's just the way you worded it.

    As the others said, the cramping is very concerning but again, girls in my DIG had the same thing due to dehydration. Did you end up going to the hospital?

    I had the same goblin
    Because the clitoris continues inside by a couple if cm's, sometimes I would feel that sensation too
    I also got bh 5 or so times a day from 28w. Started engaging at 34w
    Spontaneous at 39w4d

    Hi @BigMumma83,

    How are you feeling today?

    I'm 25 weeks and already I feel very heavy, sore and swollen 'down there'. My Ob/gyn said its just due to the pressure of baby and will most likely get worse. You may be feeling a numbness or tingling sensation. She checked to make sure it wasn't varicose veins.

    Hope this helps.

    With regards to the cramps, could it just be Braxton hicks? Im getting them already.
