Did you have cramping, similar to menstrual cramping, during your pregnancy?

I had this with my oldest, but I was really in labor, full term. But last night, I started having this again, at 26 weeks. Could it be from having eaten too much?

  • I am 34wks, it's my second pregnancy and I didn't have cramping with my first, but I do all the time now. I tried talking to the doctor about it and they said it's normal. I know what you're going through though and it sucks :(

  • Aqua_Jen, DEFINITELY not constipated... lol!!! Other end of the spectrum on that one!! I thought it might have been from over eating, but I am having this again tonight, along with pelvic pressure and back pain. I feel like I have to have a bowel movement, but I do not. I am also still having the braxton hicks contractions on top of this cramping... UGH!!! I do not want to go to the hospital... Starting to wonder if I should call the on call OBGYN at the hospital...
