I cant get into see the doc until tuesday... should i be concerned that all the stress could hurt my baby? Also i have to carry around my 40 child but not that often?

  • Cramping is a sign of preterm labor. Are you having contractions with the cramping?? If not drink plenty of water and relax as much as possible. Try not to lift anything heavy and get as much rest as you can until you can get into your doctor's office. Good luck and god bless!

  • Oh and stress can bring on preterm labor...what you feel mentally can come out physically in your body. Please, please relax!!
