I’m one day away from officially being in the third trimester and I think the baby must have got the memo too!! He seems to have upped his ninja kicks and general shuffling about inside so that now it is less of a butterfly fluttering sensation and more of a jabbing one. Sometimes I even have to check that it is in fact the baby kicking/punching and not someone else poking me to get my attention.
Pregnancy never stops being weird.
The latest development however came last night when I noticed I had lower back pain / achiness. This is a similar kind of pain to what I would get with period pain and also what I got during embryo implantation. It’s a pain level of about 6/10. Enough to be cranky about it, not enough to be worried.
I wondered if this was a kind of Braxton Hicks thing but I didn’t notice any belly muscle tightening and it wasn’t like a cramp that came and went repeatedly so I’m not sure. I laid on my left side in bed for a while and applied a heat pack to my back and after about 20 minutes it pretty much disappeared.
Both hubby and I decided it was probably nothing to be worried about but if it had been a more intense pain and gone on longer I think I would call the doctor.
Does anyone else have similar experiences? At what point should I worry?
