Period type aches at 30 weeks?

For the past two days I have been feeling the sort of feeling I get before my period starts, I never got cramps before a period but normally have this weird sore feeling in lower abdomen.

I have been getting this feeling on and off since yesterday.

Great fetal movement, no props there, and they definitely arent b hicks as no cramps.

I wonder whats happening.

It could well be stretching pains hun. I've been getting periody type pains for weeks now. It could also be where your baby is pressing on your bowel. Bowel pain is surprisingly like period pains. If you do get any tightenings which hurt like period pains though, keep an eye on them. You may have a urine infection also which can cause uncomfortable pains like these. You could always get checked out if it really worries you, or defo if it gets worse.

As Mrs Smiff says, it could be a urine infection. Easily diagnosed, easily ruled out and easily treated BUT can cause problems if left unattended to. If you're still experiencing discomfort tomorrow, call your GP and explain that you're concerned in case you have a water infection and ask if anyone can do you a quick urine test asap. They might ask you to take a sample in and have someone do it for you quite quickly.
