  • Could be a cleansing phase- where your body cleans itself out before D-day. I wouldn't worry about it sound like your just preparing for your baby =) obviously if anything unusual happens ( blood, water breaks regular contractions whatever) call your doc

  • I'm 38 weeks to and been having those too. Not exactly sure what it is, wish I could help. I've been having alot of contractions too. My SIL told me that it's your cervix prepairing to dilate. Whether she's right or not I have no idea. But I'm already 4cm, so very well could be? Sorry not much help, but I feel your pain!
