  • I would definitely go in then if it is getting worse.  Don't worry about bothering the OB nurses.  That is what they are there for.  I would like to know what happens, please?  You can PM me with the outcome.

  • It could be contractions. Seeing as how you are 35 weeks, you should probably have it checked out.  I got cramps in my shins a lot. The only time when I got cramps in the inner thigh is when I miscarried.  Rereading your question, it certainly sounds like contractions.  Is it one long continuous pain or bursts of pain?
