Sorry if this upsets anyone but I'm trying to figure out what I should be worried about. I have cramps down low, just between my pubic area and tummy. I don't know if this is something to be concerned about as its almost constant? I also have stitch like pains in my side My head is wrecked :o(

Sorry I could not reply. How long are you pregnant? Cramps in early pregnancy are common it is genreally the womb stretching, If you are later on in pregnancy, it could be braxton hicks or possibly start of labour. Dont panic but either way early or late pregnancy you shoudl ring the a&e of maternity hospital just in case theres something else going on,they will advise you correctly and put your mind at ease. If you start bleeding heavily or the pain becomes unbareable go to the hospital right away. But Im sure everything is ok hun, a quick call to the hospital will put your mind at ease!!!!!!!!

I'm only around 6 weeks, its a bit confusing as I have an irregular cycle. I'll give Holles st a buzz tomorrow morning and see what they say. Its worse than period pain and that worries me, but I'm a wuss with no pain threshold at all :-8 Thanks for the responses, it really helps :lvs
