What is this uncomfortable feeling.....

I'm 33 weeks and the last couple of days off and on I've gotten mildly painful cramping way down low. I know it is not contractions because they only last a couple seconds and only happen every so often. They don't start in my back either. I just wonder if it is because she is dropping or moving around and hitting something. It feels alot like cramping. It is very very low, like right above my pubic area. Anyone have ideas. I just want to make sure it is normal.

  • I'm 35 weeks and started getting that feeling about a week or 2 ago.... I think it's normal. I havent gone into labor yet, I havent had any braxton hicks either (since the cramping started) I think everything down there is just getting ready.

  • It's probably braxton hicks or "practice contractions". And BTW, not all women experiemce contractions the same way. Mine NEVER lasted more than 30 secs. And did not start in my back and .ove around like they say. And I had a completely natural labor/delivery so I felt everything. Just letting you know.

  • It could also just be the plevic bones moving or ligaments stretchings as baby moves around and your body changes.

  • I had these feelings around my 25th week. I never got an answer for them and they eventually went away. No I get serious braxton hicks all thru the night @ 32 weeks.
