I am having contractions but I am not pregnant...

I know that it may sound silly..but I have had 5 pregnancies and I am not pregnant right now. I have been having off and on contractions since yesterday at 3pm...sometimes is it mild sometimes is it very very painful. Has anyone experienced this before?

  • no being snarky: Are you sure it isn't gas. I have IBS and I can have bowel craps that are worse than my early onset labor cramps were.

  • Do you need to go poop? Do you have a history of endometriosis? Is it time for your period?

  • I would just inform your Dr. to be sure. Could be gas? How long ago did you have your youngest child?

  • the gas can be high up in your intestine. Just because you aren't farting doesn't mean it isn't still in there
