  • time the pain, it could be contractions. also, since you haven't hit 37 weeks yet you should call L&D and see what they have to say. They might want to stop you from going in to labor.

  • You want to slow this down and let your baby stay in there. You are probably having normal contractions caused from orgasm.

    Drink a bunch of water
    soak in a warm bath
    rest-- go to bed after your bath

    if the cramps start to feel like your period and get stronger and closer together, call your doc/midwife. If there is bright red blood, call.

  • um yeah lol you probably passing the mucus plug the goo you are talking about umm the pain probably... uhh if the pan comes and goes and starts to get to about 8-5 min apart.... depending on how far you have to go to deliver and whether you want an epidural then you should go in.

  • sounds like good solid braxton hicks... I'd drink a bunch of water and lie down. If they don't settle down, call your doc
