I'm 35 weeks pregnant, but maybe a bit further. For the last couple of hours I've had what feels like menstrual cramps that come and go about every 8 minutes. The pain isn't terrible, but then again I've always suffered from extreme menstrual cramps, so I'm unsure of my pain tolerance. My question is...what does early labor feel like? Could these be contractions? I called my Dr. and he said to go to the hospital if they get worse or don't stop within a couple more hours. Did yours start out mild, but painful...or excruciating?
