  • It sounds like your in the early stages of labor. I would call your doctor to talk to them to see what you should do. They will want to know if you are getting movement from your baby. Good luck :)

  • is it like you get an intense cramp that lasts for 60 seconds, it goes away, and then returs a few minutes later, and so on? if it is something like that, then yes i would go ahead and call since it's a bit early. if you are just feeling inconsistent cramping, or not very intense, then it's probably just braxton hicks type cramps that could go on for a month or longer :) good luck!
