Menstrual cramps in the front and in the back for two days now! I am 36 and 1/2 weeks pregnant.Any one else have this during pregnancy?

I was up most of the night with horrible back ache pains that feel like menstrual cramps. I am 36 1/2 weeks with my pregnancy. I do go to the doctor today however they do not check me until 38 weeks.Could this be a sign of pre term labor or just my cervix starting to open. Any thoughts or experiences with this?

  • Yes, those could be labor pains. Make sure you mention them to your doctor on your visit today.
    Good luck!

  • I would say they are labor pains, I would mention it to your doctor when you go in today. So that they can closely monitor you! Good luck.

  • That is exactly how I felt when I began labor. It could still be days or even weeks away though!!
