Anyone please....

Last night I was trying to get comfortable to go to sleep. Im 35 weeks pregnant so yeah why was I even trying. Anyways I finally get to sleep only to wake up to sharp pains in my cervix or vagina or something. The baby would move and it hurt so bad that I was crying, and cramping omg was I cramping. But every time the baby would move it almost felt like he was gonna come out. What Im asking is how do you know when your dilating or do you know and how do you know when your having contractions, Ive had 2 c-sections and of course with this one to and never have experienced what they feel like. Anyone??

  • To me, that sounds like labor may just be per-term or braxton hicks contractions. But always call the doctor to make sure. Good luck!

  • The early stages of normal labor are not sharp and painful but they get your attention are would be better descripbed as cramping, but not enough to make you cry unless you are much further along in labor than you think. Check with your doctor immediately. Because of your history you could have any number of things going on which (s)he should be made aware of.
