  • Im not really sure but i would call your doctor to be on the safe side. He might have you come in right now to labor and delivery to be put on the monitor to make sure your not contracting. Im 36 and 3 days and when I feel any kind of contractions its like menstrul cramps but they dont start from the side they start somewhere in the top to middle and work down. GL hope everything is ok

  • Your uterus is stretching. IF you are still having concerns, call your doctor to speak with a nurse and describe what you are feeling and she will let you know what you are experiencing. But dont panic,
