OMG....please help

Okay so i'm 38 weeks yesterday. Thursday evening I started having cramping in my front and back along with very strong contractions. This went on until Saturday early morning. Then nothing all day yesterday. Hubby and I went walking for hours last night....nothing. Today i'm extremely nausious and my hips feel like they are burning. My other children were induced so I have no idea what is going on with me. Please help. Are these early labor symptoms?? Any other mom's have this??

  • you might want to get ready for the hospital soon.

    i would not call it "early" labor when you are 38weeks along.

  • I think she means "early" as in the beginning of labor. lol

    Early labor is a little different for everyone. If you're still having some cramping and hardening...maybe go get checked.

    But I'd make sure your bag is packed anyway....

  • It could be labor, or it could be a reaction to all the walking that you did, since your joints are probably loosening in preparation for giving birth. Call the doctor in the morning and ask. Good luck!

  • It could be wishful many moms think they are going into labor but still deliver around their due date or after. I'd just chill and rest for now.
