Hello ladies! What a morning I've had!! So that is me now at 25+3 weeks with my little man! My sleeping patern has gone all out the window and my only sleeping hours consist between 1-5 in the morning! I am now a walking zombie! Anyway this morning I woke up at half 4 with awful pains in my belly, only getting much worse! My god, maybe I'm just a wimp but it was agony!! So phoned nhs 24 and was told if they didnt stop to come in. Of course it was a man doctor I spoke to on the phone and his reply to me was "Braxton hicks are relatively painless". Like I said maybe I'm just a big wuss, but he ended up getting a bit of a mouthful from me! My partner was just fantastic (despite having a bit of an aurgument last night) and was there waiting on my hand and foot and told me he wouldn't leave jumped in the bath for half an hour and all seemed to settle down a bit and was feeling quite a bit better. He sat by the bath and held my hand the whole time. I must admit I'm so impressed because he is usually no use in situations like this and usually panics! I'm so proud of him and he really looked after me, and I have no doubts he is going to be amazing when the real thing happens! After sleeping all through the morning, still feeling pretty crappy, feeling exhausted, sore belly still but just an achy feeling, feeling quite hot and faint. Is that normal after Braxton hicks? Hope all ladies and their bumps are well
