  • I would call my doc. Some cramping/pain is normal but to be in alot of pain everyday is not. Good luck hon.

  • You might have a kidney inf. or some kind of infect. Mine was like that and still is but I went to the hospital and had a uti but they didnt see it when they checked my urine. And by the time I went to the dr the next week it had turned into a kidney infection. but like the pp said A LOT ALL the time isnt normal. But my docs say they cant do anything for me. I have to deal with it til she comes. which thank god is in no more then 17days.

  • you were just at the hospital and you were in labor. do they feel anything like they did that night?

  • Period like cramping is actually a sign of dilation. It is a good thing. I would call them and tell them that you are having period like cramps and ask them if you can be checked.

  • they feel exactly like they did before. but my dr told me dont go or call unless i have 6 or more contractions an hour, but these cramps get intense.

  • How many are you having? Have they gotten closer or more intence through out the day? they dont have to be 5min apart to be labor

  • do you think i should just wait a little bit and see how the rest of the day goes???right when i woke up i was cramped, i woke up from being cramped.

  • You can start that early so dont worry to much about the dilation just as long as it doesnt get to be to much like 3-4cm. I swear I can feel my daughter down there too but they say she isnt there yet. If you are worried dont listen to the dr and go to l&d I hate going so I wait and I have swore I WONT go back until my water breaks or my contractions get REALLY bad. But you know your body and if you think there is something wrong or you cant handle it then go no one is going to shun you for being worried.
