  • Could be light contractions. If it gets worse you should go to your OB or the hospital.

    But.. i had menstrual like cramps almost through my whole pregnancy... when the uterus was getting bigger ect.

  • That's how my labor was! I had no cramping or braxton hicks my entire pregnancy, so I knew when I was feeling these little "cramps" every 3-5 minutes that it was labor. But I relaxed as much as I could and didn't go to the hospital for 12 more hours.
