Ok i'm 33 weeks and i've just been getting some little cramps lately, nothing really painful, just feels like a little cramp, and it never lasts for very long and there is never any bleeding or anything else involved. what could this be? is it just more growing pains? i thought i was over that point by now.

  • Alot of people have asked this question on here, including me. It sounds like it is very, very common at this stage of pregnancy. I'm 34 weeks and have had it off and on for the last week. It feels alot like menstrual cramps. Most people have said it is either Braxton Hicks or just your body getting ready.

  • I think your body is just getting ready for whats ahead. Nothing to worry about love!!

  • Ur baby grows about a half a lb a week after 35weeks, so there is MUCH growing to do yet- Most of my pain/discomfort and cramps were from weeks 36-39 which is where Im at now. I think its alot to do wtih baby dropping, and getting bigger and having less and less space to move around in. Also you baby could be going into position now- In the end those pains are normal, and will soon be gone!
    Good luck mama~
