Menstral cramps and 37 weeks pregnant is this normal?
ok first off at the beginning of my pregnancy the baby was really low because when I started feeling the baby kick I was feeling the baby kick in my private. I am not feeling that anymore, but I do still get sharp pains in my private every now and then especially when I bend over or I walk for a while. But this part has been through my whole pregnancy. Well I went to the dr 2 weeks ago and he said that I was soft, but had ways to go. I went last week and he said he would check me again this week to see if I am dialated yet. The thing is for the last few days I been having menstral like cramps. They aren't bad or anything just feel like I am about to start my period. They will come or go or sometimes I will have the cramps for about half an hour or so before they go away. Is this normal? You think I would know having 2 other kids, but I was induced with them and I was already at the hospital and I was getting patocin and my contractions were pretty strong. So not sure if I should call the doctor? Or should I wait until I go in on Friday at 215? He knows about the pressure in my private he said that is normal, but now I am getting the cramps. It doesn't hurt really just more annoying cause I feel like I am about to start my period or something. I am 37 weeks today although I could be 39 weeks even because all 5 ultrasounds I have had has showed the baby 2 weeks ahead. Or dh thinks it might be from the heat since it has been in the almost 90's?
anyway everyone was telling me it was normal and probably braxtonhicks contractions well last night I couldn't fall asleep couldn't get in a comfy spot. Well I finally fell asleep probably about 1am well then I woke up at 3am cause I had to pee, but then I was having the menstral cramps again, but they wouldn't go away they stayed from 3 until about 430. I woke up and I was fine, but when I started walking around the menstral cramps come back. Is this normal? Is it still BH contractions? My drs office is close today so I hate to call for nothing. My next app. is Friday this week.
