28 weeks and menstrual like cramping
Hey ladies,

I am 28 weeks pregnant and I have been having menstrual like cramps all morning long.  I don't have any bleeding.  Just feels like it used to feel when AF was about to pay a visit.  

Is this normal?  Or what could it be?

Thanks so much!  (My doctor's office is closed on Saturdays, or else I'd call them.)

Okay, so they went away for about an hour and now they're coming back.  This is my first pregnancy and I don't know what braxton hicks contractions feel like.  Could that be it??

CraMping always needs to be checked out. This is not to scare you. I had this one am, two sets of menstrual cramps. I was concerned so i layed down and monitor it for a bit, i had nothing more and was goingto ignore it. I called a nursing line who told me ineeded to get checked despite them going away.
I went in assuming i was wastjng time, turned out i am at risk for preterm labor and my cervix is shortening. Now im bed rest in the hospital for labor now.

My ob said any type of crampingbut particularly menstrual cramps need to be evaluated. It could be nothing but if it is something, its better to know now rather than finding out in the3 weeks for example when you go into labor and they have to try to stop it.  Go to l&d

I've had off and on cramping since around 27-28 weeks I am now 35 weeks. First time i was seen the hospital told me I was dehydrated(even tho I know I wasn't). The second time they said it was braxton hicks and baby dropped. Since then tho I've had a ton of stuff to go with the cramping and I highly doubt I will make it to full term. You should definitely get it checked out. Keep us posted.
