39 weeks + 4 days, constant cramps, dull backache.. Labor??

Ok so ive been have constant period like cramps all freaking day (im very annoyed about it lol lol) and a dull backache that wont go away either, ive been having some contractions today also, honestly i have not been timing them i keep have false "jump starts" as my doctor calls them which only has resulted in me going to L&D them telling me im not dialating fast enough and i must do the "waddle of shame" again and go home lol lol

SO...the question is any other momma's going through or have gone through this?? What happened? was is labor?? these cramps and contractions are begining to get annoying and painful enough that im going to start timing them but still wanted to see if anyone else is going through this lol lol

=D thanks =D

  • Sounds like labor. Some women do have back labor. I had bad contractions in my tummy but my sister had back pain and cramps. I'd go get checked out!

  • That's what mine felt like in early labor. Good luck! He/she will be here soon either way. :D

  • Oh plus, after 39 weeks they can induce you without having a complication.

  • You need to call your doctor or go to L&D. You don't want to be giving birth at home do you? Better safe than sorry. My sister went from a 4 to a 10 in 1 1/2 hours.

  • I had my Daughter on my due date ,even though Drs.tried 2 tell me it would be 2 days earlier. When I would try 2 stand up 2 days earlier I could hardly walk,so I was having pre-labor contractions.. My Daughter was almost born @ home..

  • I had back labor with both my children. It hurts like hell lol. I would start timing them though. Believe me, you will know when its time . With my first, my water broke and I had light back labor but with my second, I had regular and back contractions and after just getting back from the hospital that morning, I had to go back because it was the real thing lol.
