  • Relax, lie down, and eat or drink something. If the pain continues, gets worse, or you see blood then call your doctor or midwife. Sometimes you cramp up a little and it's normal. Just watch out for those signs though and things should be okay. Good luck sweetie.

  • Anon is right. Also what wasn't told to me is that it is normal for you to feel some pain as your uterus stretches and muscles and tendons stretch. But if it continues after you follow anons advice then do call your doctor. Any bleeding tho and call right away ok?

  • You might feel "cramps" the entire way through ( I have with this pregnancy). It is round ligament pain. If you are getting "crampy, contraction" type feelings make sure you are drinking enough water ( dehydration can cause contractions).

  • It could also be Braxton Hicks contractions - which are like practice contractions. it is normal to start having these practice contractions at this time, and it's your body's way of "strength training" for labor. Take it as sign that your uterus is preparing for the big day! As long as they don't start setting a regular pattern (coming regularly and closer together) over the course of a couple hours, and as long as you don't see blood - I wouldn't worry about it. :)
