33 weeks and getting pains! help with answers! Hannah Purdon Due May 1; Hobart, Australia 2 posts12th Mar
Im 33 weeks and i've had pains for the last 4 days now! I had a scare at 27 weeks and starting getting contractions that they managed to control and eventually stopped. Its tightenings in my belly and a lower back pain with a mild period type pain in my lower front. its making me so tired and frustrated! I have had more discharge than usual and had loose bowel movements on the first day it started. at first i put it down to braxton hicks but they just haven't really stopped and at night get worse. His head feels very low and when i had my ultrasound last week he was head down ready again! I haven't had a 'show' yet or no waters yet either. could BH last this long without stopping? :(

I would go to the ER if I were you. Could be preterm labor. I had BH contractions all through the last 2 months of my pregnancy but they were nothing like what you're experiencing

just don't want to feel like I'm being a bother as some midwifes are quite mean :( i called them yesterday and they just told me it was braxton hicks but i didn't think braxton hicks lasted this long? the pains are slightly worse than day one but haven't gotten really bad. i get in the shower to see if they'll go and i get out and jump back in bed with the pains still. people tell me you know when your in real labour but the first time i was having these pains i didn't even know i was contracting!
