SEVERE cramping

I had my membranes stripped well over 24 hours ago and I was supposed to have cramping (which I did all night last night) all day. Well I am getting cramping again and it is really severe. I do not believe these are contractions. I am still bleeding a bit too. How long after having your membranes stripped are you supposed to cramp? Is this normal?

I am 40w+3d

  • If you are bleeding then go to the hospital. If the cramps are severe then head to the hospital. Good Luck
