It's possibly one or a combination of the weight of your baby pulling at your ligaments, your uterus stretching, braxton hicks, constipation or your cervix taking a battering. When's your next midwife appointment? Is baby moving around plenty and when did you last have your wee tested? Sometimes a water infection can make you feel tummy achey.

It's really very normal for you to have all manner of new aches and twinges near the end. It's such a lot of weight for your body to be coping with and while you've gone so long thinking that any twinge or pain is a bad thing, as the days and weeks progress now, pain and twinges are to be expected, encouraged and considered normal. It's a lot to get your head around but at some point soon you'll be in real pain and your midwife will smile and leave you to it because your baby's almost fully cooked and twinges usually mean that things are going in the right direction.

If you feel really uncomfortable and worried, it does no harm to call your midwife and ask her advice.
