early labor?

What does early labor feel like? I'm 36 wks and 3 days pregnant and have a persistant cramping feeling in my lower abdomen (sp?) and my tummy is tightening. Could it be early labor? And how long does the early labor usually last?

  • Could be braxton hicks as well. It could also be that you are slightly dehydrated. Try drinking a bottle of water and lay down and see how you feel after an hour.

  • OP here I've been drinking water all day so I know I'm not dehydrated

  • In that case, it could be the very beginning start of labor, but honestly, the early stages could last a couple weeks, but it still could be braxton hicks as well. Is the tightness coming at any regular intervals?

  • The tightness isn't no.
