cramping slight contractions all day. almost20 weeks

Ok this isn't my first pregnancy, it's number five. I've been under about of stress alot of things going on in my life that's not been easy.  I'm already a high risk pregnancy for multiple reasons. I'll be20weeks In a few days and wanted to know what everyone thinks.  I've been really CRAMPYY having slight contractions on and of all day today.  I have been debating calling my midwife.  Want to know if people think I should get checked or wait it out? Plz help...

If your having contractions at 20 weeks, you should be seen to err on the side of caution.  Take good care.

I really hope things got better for you.  I'm sorta in the same boat.  We've been house shopping now for months, saving money like crazy - on my fourth kid (fifth if you count an adopted brother), taking full & part time classes at school, fighting to keep full custody of my other 3, and stressed to the max.  Contractions started this week for me and I'm freaking out.  My first baby shower ever is Sunday - I have no clue what to think/expect and I have 34 days left until I'm due.  Maybe it's 35.  I don't even know =\ ugh.  Please keep us posted - my nerves are shot and I love knowing I'm not alone!

Thanks u very much everyone.  Yes it's gotten better thank god iwad getting very worried..  I'm almost 22weeks now.. I still get them when I'm really stressed out which is alot in my life..  But I make myself calm down and relax a bit.  I can't wait to see her but Not youret she's tooo little.  I know Braxton hicks but these were actually painful cramping etc.  THNXX again.  :)
