  • what about contractions? have you been monitoring them? are they regular? is the website i use. i've had 3 false labors since 35 weeks. slow down, relax, take a couple deep breaths and climb into the bath tub. if you are really that worried, call your doctor or even call labor and delivery. each will know what to do. i'm 39.4 weeks and i've had incredible cramping in my lower abdomin for the last month and a half. it's because of how low the baby is sitting. believe me, the waiting game doesn't move any faster. i'm stuck in the middle of it as well. it sucks.

  • I'd call your dr. and see if you can't go in for a check. I NEVER had contractions before I was in the hospital. My water broke, and I was told to go to hospital. Contractions started after they induced labor. Labor is different for everyone.

  • Monitor your contractions. I hurt that way but it was only the beauty of being pregnant. You will know when your in labor but if you are concered talk to your doctor for sure.
