  • I only ever had contractions when i went into preterm labor....but they felt like period cramps in my lower back and abdomen.

    call your doctor she/he should be able to advise you on what to do.

  • is it like you have one for a short bit, then it stops, but comes back again a little later? are they coming consistently, or just every once in a while? personally i would just relax as much as possible unless i was having these "contrax" every 4 minutes for over an hour. then i would call my midwife, and possibly head to my birth place =) at past 37 weeks you shouldn't have to worry about a thing because if baby has decided it's time, it's time! but it could also be just early labor stuff that can last for WEEKS!
