I'm almost 35 weeks pregnant right now and I'm laying in bed right now but I'm feeling cramping in my stomach. I don't think they are contractions. It feels like menstrual cramps. Is this normal? Is anyone else experiencing this?
I've been walking almost 2 hours from day 1 of my pregnancy. Not by choice but because of work and renovations so I've been thinking I would go into labor early but I hope not this early :/
I think it's normal. I've been having the cramping for quite some time already and I've mentioned it to my doctor several times and they just tell me it's normal. Is your uterus getting tight? How often?
Is it getting worse and does it get slightly better when you move around? If your worried that they are contractions take some tylenol, drink 2 glasses of water, pee and then play down on your left side for an hour and see if they kinda go away. BH start to get bad at this time (especially if this isn't your first baby). I get bad contractions all the time that last a couple hours but eventually they subside. If you are worried though you can always go to the hospital and get monitored to make sure everything is ok. Let us know what happens.
ive been having them too. they aren't severe, and rest helps...I think things are just getting pulled and tightened now as we are getting to this point. Try to take it as easy as you can. Keep drinking water...I know that when I feel the cramps it tends to be when I've not drank a lot.
It could be how the baby is laying inside there. My babies flipped breech, and then I started having tons of cervical cramps at about 35 weeks also. Since a few days ago though, my cramping has stopped (and my belly looks a different shape now than it did). So maybe trying to figure out how baby lies could be helpful for you. I'm still waiting to hear that the bubs aren't breech anymore. :P
