38 weeks and cramping

All day today I have been having what feel like bad period cramps. I called the doctor, but my ob was out today so they told me to just rest and drink lots of fluids. It didnt really help, and I am still cramping. I go in tomorrow to see my ob and I plan to mention it, just wanted to know if any one else experienced this.

  • That is how I felt in early labor. Labor feels like period cramps.
    Good luck!

  • That is how my contractions felt when I was in labor. The cramps kept getting lower as my son got lower. Good luck tomorrow :)

  • I have an appointment at 3:45. The cramping has stopped some, but I still feel it every now and then. With my husband being gone on work duty it's hard to just pack up and go to the hospital..especially with a 2.5 year old. I didn't want to call my mom at 3:00 am and have her go with me for nothing.
