Is this normal?

I'm 7 months pregnant and this is my second pregnancy. I've been having a lot of cramping...almost like early contraction pains. Whenever I work for even a few hours it is too much. Everything looks normal in the ultrasounds. I just don't remember having it this bad during my first pregnancy. Is something wrong or going on? Did anyone else have this?

  • If the doc had you on a fetal heart monitor and said everything is fine, I would chalk it up to getting ready for the real thing.

  • Braxton hicks contractions could be the cause. Drink a big glass of water every time it happens. Your body is just gearing up.
