Hi

Since yesterday afternoon I have been getting a cramping type pain on the left side of my bump. It comes for about 30 seconds and then goes away. The pain re-occurs but not to any regular pattern, I have also had a similar pain in the left hand side of my lower back. I've not had any Braxton Hicks through my pregnancy.

Do you think I should be worrying about these? Baby has been moving regularly and as I have a midwife appointment tomorrow morning I haven't called them to ask them about it, just wanted an expert opinion before I start worrying!

Thanks

Sam

Hi

it may be pain due to ? early labour or , as you say, braxton hicks. Mention it to your midwife tomorrow, she will check your urine (take one with you) just to make sure you don't have an infection.

Drink plenty, just in case, and take some paracetamol if you need to. Try a warm bath, see if it helps

Contact your maternity unit if you feel you need to

Take care x
