32 weeks pregnant, Contractions?

I am 32 weeks pregnant with baby #3 last night my stomach started tightening a lot, and it kept happening every 13 min and would last about 30 seconds, i keep having a dull pain in my back and alot of pressure down there. I tried changing positions and drinking water but it didnt really seem to help anything. I could still time them at 13min. I went to sleep trying to brush it off. I'm not sure if these really are contractions or not with my other 2 i was induced early due to pre-e. I have my 33 week apt on friday, last week when i went in they said he was already head down. I'm not sure if i should call my doctor or just wait. this morning my stomach is doing the same thing tightening and my back and pelvis are still bothering me.

  • I would call my doctor if I were you. I do know that my BH contractions were much stronger by my 3rd but they weren't regular. Since your contractions ARE regular, you need to call your doc.

  • Definitely call your doctor! Especially given your history with your first two.

  • I started having irregular contractions about that far along, but I didn't start having regular contractions until about 36-37ish weeks. You could be in early labor, that is what happened with me. My contractions started being 10 minutes apart the Friday before last, I still don't have a baby. I am still in early labor, and this is my 2nd baby.
