Are period like cramps normal at 39 weeks??

SO I have been experiencing these period like cramps.. I know they are not contractions because they are non stop just like if my period is on. This has started like Sat night. I went to the doc yesterday and told her but she acted like it was normal. I just wonder has anyone else had cramps that are non stop... Although the doctor says its fine it still kind of worries me.

  • the night before my son was born i felt crampy all night, i would say it was period-like crampiness. then i went into labor the next morning. i think it's really normal in the end of pregnancy. i don't think it necessarily means that you will go into labor soon, still could be a couple more weeks, but maybe just getting your body ready, & driving you crazy! good luck :)

  • Sounds like the beginning of labor. Contractions feel just like cramps.

  • beginning of labor for sure but when that starts no one knows but be ready, if those get worse go in and see whats going on, all labors are different. good luck

  • get ready.your body is preparung your uterus to contract and your palcenta is being moved around a lil more.mommie...there is almost no more room in there.:) Your cramps are a great sign that your body is reacting to the onset of labor.if you havent lost your mucus plug.start lookin :) CNA TO AN OB/GYN.

    GOOD LUCK, REMEMBER TO BREATH.......................HUGZ TO U.....
