  • I would say that this is just a part of it...but you're high risk and haven't been taking something you should. Honestly, I would call my OB, explain what is going on and why. They'll probably want to check you out and make sure everything is ok. drinking fluids can help with cramping since they can be caused by dehydration (ended up in the hospital a couple times for that myself). Hopefully everythign is ok but you really need to call your doctor to make sure

  • I would get checked out just in case. But I know I don't have anything wrong with me and I have been checked out many times. I am crampy every single night (I have had a kid, and I know what contractions feel like and these are pretty painful compared), I always ache all over. I've had three ultrasounds and lots of checkups and everything is good. Tylenol doesn't work so to compensate for the pain I allow myself a yummy treat every couple of days (maybe not the best advice but it helps make me not feel so horrible). I am about 24 and a 1/2 weeks.
