Call L&D?

About half an hour ago, I was getting a few pains in my lower abdomen that would shoot down.And one lasted a few seconds, then another happend 4 mins later, then another one another 4 min. Then they stopped, and now those aren''t happening, but im kind of feeling a little sick to my stomache.
What could cause this or be from? If it continues, and those pains come back should I call L&D? Im also 34, almost 35 weeks. Any advice would help! Thanks!

  • Drink a LOT of water and then lie down. Try and take a soothing shower if that doesn't work. Moms have dehydration contractions around that time, and can be stopped. But if you aren't able to control this then calling in is important.

    Good luck!
