Feeling strange...

Hi all. I'm now 30 weeks and for the past few days have been feeling really strange. My hormones are back with a vengence - I'm snapping at everyone, crying at the drop of a hat.. I was like this in my first few months but it passed - now its back! Also, I've been getting what I think are Braxton Hicks - real tightening across my lower belly which is really uncomfortable. I've also been getting a period pain like back ache - a really dull aching throb. And to top it off my groin area has a really dull aching throb all the time too!! I just feel like I'm falling apart! Have had a constant headache for 3 days and my fingers are really starting to swell !

Is this normal for my stage in pregnancy? Its my first baby so I don't know what's normal and what's not. Am I starting to panic myself over things that I don't need to panic over? I'm not due at the midwife for another 2 weeks but wonder if I should make an appointment with her this week to double check I'm OK.
