Labor or not!? HELP!!!

Im having Super sharp pains shooting down my stomach starting at right under my rib cage and going down to my crotch. I feel a TON of pressure when they happen and their coming like every 5 to 6 min. My tummy gets really tight when it happens.Is this labor or not? I tried to poop cuz I thought it might help but nothing. Im 38 weeks and 5 days preg.

  • It could be, does it feel like a period cramp? Like a strong one? Sounds like labor is a good possibility. Call Labor and Delivery.

  • just relax and wait it out. if you start having these intense pains every 4-5 minutes for over an hour, you might want to call your midwife/ OB. good luck =) there is nothing really to worry about. just try to relax because baby might come today, or in a month. sometimes women have early labor weeks before baby comes.
