  • i think you should drink some water and lay down and relax. can you time these cramps? if you can i think you should call your dr.

  • not normal! don't want to scare you or anything, but that is what labor contractions felt like for me and it is way too early for you to be feeling those. drink water, lay on your side and call your l&d department

  • i am almost 36 weeks and have been on bed rest for the past m and was having the same kind of things. i was told to drink more water and only to get up to go to the bathroom. yes lay on my back/side and not get up to do anything but go to the bathroom. so i would say you have 2 days till you talk to your dr lay down relax put your feet up find a good book or something and drink lots of water. if you feel like you are realy hurting call your dr and remember to breath.
