What is this pain that i a experiencing?


Q: I'm six months pregnant and I keep getting a really strong pain in my abdomen and my lower back. I woke up at 3am this morning in great pain however this was on my bump it went away after about 2 minutes or so. I decided to go back to sleep as I thought nothing of it. The pain that I have been experiencing in my abdomen and lower back have been coming and going for a week or so now but the pain seems to be increasing each time. Whilst writing this I am in a great deal of pain I cannot move properly and am hunched over in pain, this pain is across my bump but I am not feeling any tightening. Another pain that I have been experiencing is an awful lot of pressure on my bump.

Symptoms:  Pain. Lots and lots and lots of pain.
