    PMS cramps, to me as always been a sign of early labor, and i am having soft none painful contractions.. so I was thinking its a sign of early labor.. passed 34 weeks im not worried anyways.. cause the baby is so far along that most issues that will come is eating, weight, ect.. my last was 36 weeks and she went home the next day..

    was hoping to hear what everyone else though

  • I will ne 36wks on tuesday. Iv been cramping amd contracting for two+ weeks and iv also had 2 preterm babies 34 & 35 weeks... My dr just tells me not to think about this one being preterm because every pregnancy is different. So enless you actually have a medical reason why you cant carry full term then id say your safe. Its at this point in pregnancies that you begain to cramp a lot and panic and are so uncomfortable you wont want to move off the couch.

    So again, take it easy and try not to think about being early or you will just drive yourself crazy. GL!

  • I have been doing the cramping and hardening of the belly the past 2 weeks. I am 37 weeks pregnant. Until the pain gets unbearable, and you notice any bleeding, spotting or your water breaks I wouldn't worry to much about it. It's been going on for two weeks for me and I was checked friday, with no dilation. So, just hang in there don't stress, and keep an eye on your body for signs of labor. Or pre-labor!
