Some cramping...

Im 31wks along. I have been having period like cramps for about the last two days...they sometimes come with braxton hicks contractions. But other times just happen for no reason. I know that you can get crampy if you not. I drink enough water and gatoraid for a small football team. Anyways... is this normal!?!?

  • My doctor told me its normal as long as there is no bleeding or more than normal discharge. Otherwise go get checked out. Its the cervix stretching.

  • I had cramps my whole 3rd trimester. It could be because the baby has droped and is just stretching the lower ligiments.

  • I had what seemed like never ending cramping during the 3rd trimester, and I panicked at first but was told by my doctor that it was completely normal and not to worry. :)
