Cramps in my lower belly.

I'm 39 wks. and been having some cramps in my lower belly. Are these contractions? They're not timeable, it's mostly like my stomach is just sore from carrying around so much weight or something.

  • No, contractions are very rhythmic. You will know that they are contractions and have no doubts. I went in many times during my first pregnancy wondering if "this was it" and it never was. When I finally did start having contractions and going into labor it was entirely different from anything else and I absolutely knew that this was it, there was no doubt at all.
