I am currently 35 weeks pregnant and have been having "period pains" on and off since Friday. It has been a combination of lower back and lower abdominal pain (I guess I should really say discomfort as with it being my first baba I know pain will arrive at a later stage) with some hardening of my stomach. There is no rhythm to it and is sometimes pretty constant (like period pains would be), I was just wondered if anyone else has experienced anything similar or has any advice? It's my first baba and therefore unsure of what's normal, I don't like to make a fuss and create a "mountain out of a mole hill" but I'm just slightly concerned feeling such symptoms before the 37 week mark. I look forward to hearing from you ladies!
