This is my first baby and I am currently 22 weeks. I am sitting at my desk getting mild cramping pains almost period type pains.
Is this just growth of uterus and baby? is this normal ha-ha

i had similar last week. None this week and still feeling him moving so have just put it down to stretching and growing! Think I'm only a few days ahead of you so similar time.
Hope you're ok, if your worried check in with your midwife

maybe its because I'm 22 weeks I can feel everything more but the growing pains haven't stopped today.
awww do you have any boys names? I have a girls but unsure of a boys name... It's so hard....
I feel like I'm on my period all over again ... Now that's one thing I do not miss hahaha

I am 20 weeks and have been getting the same for about three days now, I have put it down to very bad trapped wind (sorry for the tmi) and or stretching pains. I think I have been feeling my little guy moving still, but i'm not a 100% sure because they can feel the same as trapped wind and a gurgling belly sometimes :( I am feeling better now but still worried and get twinges every now and again- worth ringing my midwife do you think just to double check?

Hi ladies, I had quite bad cramping about 5 weeks ago (when I was 17 weeks) - I eventually concluded it was constipation pain. Is that a possibility with you? It really did feel like period pains. I had something similar over the weekend just gone but it was less period-type pain and a bit sharper in places. It has gone now and the baby is moving even more than before, so I have just put it down to gas again or to ligament pains. You could speak to your midwife if it'll put your mind at ease though.

Thank you sugarandspice85 I'm really beginning to think it was a mix between very bad trapped wind and stretching pains. Lots of pregnancy pains in one haha xx

thanks Sugar - yes I am just putting this down to growing pains, but it can be a little painful. its like having a really bad period LOL.... Im moaning now and they are not even contraction pains hahaha THE JOYS.
Cannot believe I am 22 weeks and the gender is still unknown... this is torture but I want the surprise at the end.... baby is moving today Its having a party in there.
I am ready for bed, an early night for me I think. Its my partners birthday today so any excuse to eat cake ha-ha
