  • Well just a tad bit painful more or less uncomfortable cramping. Belly isn't in any pain. Baby is still moving around somewhat.
    P.s im pre-eclampsic and not dilated at all.

  • I would probably actually call the doctor. You may not have had contractions ealier, but could be now. Even if its just a false alarm, your doctor might want to have you checked out.

  • Pre-eclampsia, 38 weeks pregnant, and you haven't been induced yet? what was your last blood pressure? And belly pain plus high blood pressure means call your doctor.

  • Okay here's another question, when you have a contraction. When you breathe does it feel like your baby is moving with the motion of your belly? Like, when you breathe in he moves in too? I just felt that, no pain though. Im gonna try walking around and see it it progress', and i feel like im going to pee myself. But i don't have to pee? Lol HELP!
