  • How far along are you? I'm just not sure but i know you can experience pain due to things stretching as the baby grows. If your worried go to the hospital so they can check, it may help ease your mind.

  • i am 8 months. and, i was thinking about calling the help line to my doctor-the doctors office is closed-in a couple hours if it still keeps on. Thanks so much for your comment though!

  • It could be "braxton hicks contrations" "pre-labor contractions' or it could be a sign of "miscarriage" I would advice to go in and get checked, if nothing else then to ease your mind.

  • I went to the doctor's office yesterday. She is head down, and the pains were just from Braxton Hicks. She is 4 pounds and 57% out of 100 developmentally. So, all is well and guess she was just moving and made the contractions worse?! Thanks for the concerns and answers to my question!
