what is this feeling?

I'm 31 weeks and every now and then I get this horrible feels like right before you start your period, like a BAD period. It lingers for a while and then goes away.

What is this? contractions or something else?

  • sounds like braxton hicks.. let your doctor know your having them but don't worry about them unless they get really intense or start coming really frequently in a pattern. Then it could be preterm labor.

  • I'm at 32 weeks and I've been getting that feeling slightly. My sister says it goes along with being pregnant (the feeling like you're getting your period). Mine are not intense (Thank God) but just check with your doc if you're not sure!
