  • I would suggest calling your OB right away. Sounds like it could be labor/contractions. But I'm no doctor.

  • id call the dr just to make sure. but just to ease your mind when i was pregnant and about that far along if i ate pizza or spicy stuff id get like that, just didnt mix with my tummy. What did you eat for dinner?

  • I had that happen last week and was told to go in because cramping could cause pre-term labor. I actually didn't end up going in, I just stayed off my feet for a couple of days and it got better. But the nurse did say to go in, so you might want to go ahead and call your ob.

  • Call your OB! When I had my first, I didn't have a single contraction until after I got to the hospital. I just had awful cramps that lasted all day long. I finally went to the hospital late that night, and I was dialated to four, fully effaced, and ready to pop!

  • Call your doctor.

  • Not to be the bearer of bad news but you need to call your OB RIGHT AWAY, my cousin had the same thing happen and didn't call the doc and go in soon enough and she lost the baby at 33 weeks. just call your OB and go into either his/her office RIGHT AWAY or go to the ER. my suggestion would be to go to the ER and have them call in your OB.... Hope everything is fine!!!!
