I'm 30 weeks. Last night I woke up around 2:30 with pretty uncomfortable period-like cramps. They did not come in waves...they were constant and bad enough to keep me awake. I also felt them in my lower back (just like my usual period cramps). Every time I went to the bathroom I expected to see blood, but there was nothing. I tossed and turned for about an hour and then said ok, forget it, I'm getting up. When I started to walk around, they got better. Every time I tried to lay down again, they came back.
Finally, I sat in the rocker for about 40 minutes and the rocking made them go away. I was able to get to sleep just before 5am. This isn't what I've heard BH to be like....any ideas? Should I be worried and call my someone (my midwife is out of the country on vacation for two weeks!) or just chalk it up to stretching, etc? It's my first pregnancy so I don't really know if this is normal or not. I had lots of fetal movement once the cramps went away and fetal movement is normal this morning,
Any peace of mind would be great! Thanks!
