  • it does sound like contractions yes but keep track of them when they get close then head in unless they just get completely unbearable then go in your 37 weeks now so they wont stop them anymore also keep an eye out for a gush of fluid that may be your water if that happens go the pain you discribed sounds exactly like what i had last week and i was in preterm labor ... good luck honey :)

  • But I am not going into labor right now.. Am I?
    If not does this mean I will go before my due date??

  • no it would be considered active laor if they were at least 5 mins apart that is why i said count them and no it doesnt mean you will go soon you may have these pains for a couple more weeks
