i THINK im starting to have contractions....

ever since earlier today i keep getting these pains where my stomach gets hard and i get these pains in my stomach and vagina area and cramps in my sides and lower back. at the grocery store they stopped me in my tracks and i had to stop and lean on the cart for a while this last one i curled up in a ball and almost wanted to cry. they arent close together to even have to time them yet, but they are intense sometimes.

i had about 8 in the past 5 hours or so...
sound like contractions??? im 39 weeks today

  • I think you are starting labor, this probally will go on for days. If you don't have an appt. this week with your OB maybe you should try to schedule one..just in case. I remember "real" contractions would start to come every 2 to 5 min....constant...I had to lay down with each one....Best of Luck to you!!! The day is almost here!!!
