34 weeks 5 days pregnant with menstrual type cramps

Hello. The past 3 days I've noticed mainly at night that I'm cramping. They feel like I'm on my period. There's no tightening in my uterus with it. It's just been happening every day at night time. I wasn't sure if anyone knew what this was? Thank you so much.

  • Could be braxton Hicks contraction, which are like practice for the uterus. Nothing to worry about unless there are other unusual symptoms. Real labor will feel much stronger

  • Sounds like Braxton Hicks. You could definitely be dehydrated. Try drinking some water & resting as much as possible.

  • its most likely you cervix thinning and efacing... just make sure you are well hydrated and rested-- try using a pillow between your knees and lay left side lying
