38 weeks and alot of sharp pains

I am having alot of very sharp pains in my stomach, the whole stomach not just my abdomen. And my stomach is very tight. Do you think it is labor?

  • Sounds like Braxton Hicks to me to be honest. Braxton Hicks may occur for a couple of hours, and then stop randomly. They also come in irregular intervals (5 mins, then 2 mins, then 10 mins) The only solution really is to stay very hydrated, and lie on your left side and relax.

    If the cramping starts coming at a regular interval (exactly 5 mins apart) for atleast 2 hours, I would contact your doctor.

  • probably pre labor. i had that on and off for about 2 weeks. it helped my cervix dialate. i was almost a 4 before i really started having regular contractions.
