  • The reason why you are having cramping is because the baby is getting big and there is not much room for him or her. He may be putting pressure on a paticular organ and it gets painful. Take tylenol. If cramping gets really really bad to where you cant handle it go to the doctor.

  • First I would drink a lot of water and see if this helps I have been warding off contractions this way for a few days now and make sure you eat enough too. Then if you continue to have this to happen I would ask your midwife, doc or caregiver to check things out for you so that you can be at ease!
