I am 34 weeks and I have a lot of questions. Since early this morning I have been having a lot of cramping in my lower abdomen, almost like menstrual cramping. They are not strong cramps just enough to make it uncomfortable, along with her being in my rib cage. But I have been having very sporadic contractions for the last 3 weeks, nothing consistent. I am just wondering if the cramping is normal or if it is something that should concern me? I am a first time mommy and have SSSOOOOO many questions. I just found cafemom today and am so thankful that I did. Because now I am actually getting my questions answered. Thank you everyone!Answer Question
You can call your OB and talk to the nurse. You could be having braxton hicks as your body gets ready, but a nurse or your OB is much more qualified to tell you than anyone here. Don't worry about calling them, some women call weekly during their entire pregnancy. I was so embarrassed when I called on a Sunday once and my doctor just laughed and told me it's part of his job.
