Feels like a bad period. adult content

I am 39 weeks pregnant and I have had really really bad cramps that last for like 20 minutes 3 times today. It feels like a horrible period. I can't walk through them. I know what to look for as far as labor goes and I know this isn't labor because it's not consistent. I was just wondering is this normal? There's no spotting or anything. Just lots of discharge.

  • You should go to the dr and be checked out. What may be normal for some may not for others. Everyone's pregnancy is different. Good luck!

  • Do you have a doc or nurse you can call? I definitely be consulting with my nurse or doc about that.

  • Sounds like the beginning of labor to me.

  • Could be baby moving into position and losing the mucus plug. It wouldnt hurt to be checked. With my 2nd I didnt think I was in labor and was just up and down all night and felt back pressure and turned out I actually was in labor. It was so much different then my 1st.

  • Ive been going through this the last week. I think its our mucus plug coming out? Doctor told me it was ok.

  • Yeah, this is my second child but you lose so much when you have children. All the little details have left me. Not that it matters much because this is a new pregnancy, which means new things may or may not happen. I am still cramping on and off and more and more discharge. If it doesn't quit soon, I will run in to be checked. Just doesn't seem to be the same symptoms they've told me to look for. Thank you ladies. Ya'll have been a great help. <3
