I get quite a lot of pain similar to period pain, where the babys head is

hi i am currently 38 wks and i get quiet a lot of pains similar to period pain mainly where the babys head is. is there anything i can do to relieve it? does it mean the baby is going to come early?

Answer: Hi,
This is very common in later pregnancy and it is just your body getting ready for the birth but it does not indicate that it will be early. It is good to go for long regular walks and warm baths are also relieving. If you are feeling discomfort at night it is safe to take panadol.
Best wishes,
Alex
