I had a sudden onset of symptoms this weekend, including excessive fatigue (which seems normal anyway) but combined with that I have had period like cramps, pain over my stomach and uterus (like bruising, so clothing is very uncomfortable if it's mid bump), a feeling like a fingernail scratching my cervix when I walk, lower back pain, weird cramp/burning/tearing feeling on the backs of my upper legs (like if you've sat on cold metal and your skin begins to heat back up).
I'm not worried about my braxton hicks, but these other syptoms have me a little concerned...just because they seem to sound like the baby may have 'dropped'. I am going to book an appointment with the Doc next week (as my midwife didn't really seem to listen).
Has anyone else experienced the baby dropping? If you've had a child before when did this happen, if it happened at all? I've heard it can happen up to 4 weeks before labour and I've heard of it happening 6 weeks before.
I'm just hoping I'm over reacting, otherwise DH prob wont be able to come home in time, my parents are in Saudi and the in-laws have just gone abroad. Fingers and legs crossed!
