Cramps at 26wks.

I'm 26weeks, and I keep having this cramping feeling in my lower right abdomen. It feels like a menstrual cramp, only I rarely had menstrual cramps pre-pregnancy. This is my second baby, I don't remember anything like this with my first. It just started this morning.. but it's been going on for about two hours now. Is this something I should worry about?

  • I'm 27 weeks and have been having them like crazy! Its probably just ligaments stretching, it seems to be worse with the second baby! You would think that since your body knows what to do, things would be a lot easier! Good luck girl!

  • Could be Braxton Hicks, or regular stretching pains. Get checked out just in case, it couldn't hurt.

  • I don't think it's Braxton-Hicks. I had contractions all through my first pregnancy, and through this one too. These are different. could be stretching pains I guess..
