35 weeks today and since yesterday I've been having period pain like cramping down below and the feeling like I need to empty my bowls all the time evn though when I go, nothing comes. It's almost constant and occasionaly get waves of more intense cramping. Wouldn't say it hurts more an uncomfortable feeling and occasionaly makes me go "oooo". Also, been having a bit of lower back ache for past few days and been having more braxton hicks. Not had a "show" or anything and my waters haven't broke so don't think it's the start of labour. Well, I hope not! This is my first baby and not really sure if I need to do anything about these symptoms or if theyr'e general pregnacy niggles.
Any input would be greatly appreciated as I'm finding it all a bit unsettling.
Thanks in advance
