Hi all, I'm 29 years old and 31 weeks pregnant with our first baby. I was diagnosed with endometriosis at 15 years old after reading an article in a magazine. Since then, I've gone through operation after operation and ended up having some of it cut away. My endo is wrapped around my bowel and has stuck my lower organs to my pelvis. During my last laproscopy, it hasn't moved to my ovaries etc but that was 5 years ago. Since falling pregnant, I've been hopeful that I'll get through it unscathed but my normal endo pain seems to be coming back. I was admitted last weekend to Bath RUH for preterm labour but luckily nothing happened. All the midwives and GP's just tell me it's impossible for the pain to be endo pain because I'm not having a period - I used to get pain anytime of the month before! Has anyone else had similar problems? My consultant is at another hospital as we moved away so unfortunately I am not under his care. I take tramadol as my normal pain relief but haven't had any since my stay in Bath. How am I meant to know what is endo pain, and what is labour pain if labour feels like period pains?! Any help!!
