Please help! Cramping at 30 weeks!! Update!

I will be 30 weeks tomorrow. I have cramping in my lower abdomen. It feels like period cramps. I also keep getting this stabbing kind of pain in what feels like my cervix. I also have this painful tingly feeling on my vagina. Not sure if it's related. My lower back is hurting also.


There is no bleeding or spotting. And I'm not having contractions.


I would call my obgyn but I just moved to a different state and I don't have one yet. I can't get one until I get back on Medicaid.

I called l&d and they said since the pain is constant and not every few minutes like contractions to take some Tylenol and a hot/warm bath and lay down and relax. She said if that doesn't help after awhile or if it gets worse I should go in.

I would go to your local ER ...   better get checked out ,    just to be on the safe side...........  what makes me think you may be in labor the most... is the back pain your getting....  You know.. even though you are in another state at the moment you can still call your regular Dr. to ask for advise.

I'm not having contractions so I didn't think it was labor.

Pain in your lower back can be labor ! IF you really are in labor the hospital can give you something to help stop it.

GET YOURSELF INTO L&D NOW. THAT BABY IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING. THEY CAN BACK DATE MEDICAID TO COVER YOUR VISIT.  EVEN IF THEY DIDN'T, WHO CARES, GET YOURSELF TO THE HOSPITAL...   A.S.A.F.P

Can you be in labor without contractions? Is there a way to see if I'm dilating without going to the er? Or would that be too risky?

Best advice call your OB. They are the ones taking care of you and can tell you what's best for you.
