  • Sounds like contractions to me. Before I had my first I really did think contractions would be sharp pains that went around my stomach. I was wrong. They are exactly like menstrual cramps. The very worst ones I've ever had. You should probably call your doctor.

  • When I was pregnant with my fourth, a male nurse tried to tell me it wasn't contractions. It was my fourth. I knew what it was. lol In your case, I'm not sure what to tell you except call your midwife or OB and get their take on it. I had a lot of cramping at the end with my fourth but they said it was because mine were spaced so closely and it was my body reacting to the wear and tear and being just generally worn out. (Four kids in as many years.)
