  • Wait it out, honestly. Are you experiencing tightness with the cramps? Are the contractions in a regular time pattern?

  • When you experience the tightness, put your fingers on the top of your uterus (usually located near your ribcage by 35 weeks). If the tightness is lasting 60-90 a piece, in a regular pattern -- I would contact your hospital.

  • Those could be contractions. If they get stronger, or closer together (around 5 minutes) then I'd consider going in.
