Call your Drs office and speak to a nurse. If not leave a message and ask for a call back. They should be able to talk with you. Hugs momma. I hope everythings going OK and they go away.

I have been having some preiod cramps when i am laying down, this is my third baby, i am 32 weeks. have a few cups of water and lay on your left side, thats what i would do.  if you feel like they are coming and going in a rhythm, call the doc. or if they wont stop you can call to be sure.

hugs

Call your doctor and see what they tell you! Best thing is to relax and see what the dr says

You might have just been really active or the baby is sitting in an odd spot causing the cramping. When I have them, I lay on my side... Drinks lots of water and they go away. Since this isn't common and you are far along I'd make an appointment with your o.b. office and see if you can come in for an exam to see if you're dilated at all. Probably isn't the case and they might not even check you bc they don't generally like messing around down there until go time bc fear of infections and what not. Good luck. I'm sure you just need rest.

Sounds like Braxton hicks . They show up when you are dehydrated.

If you EVER feel something isn't right you should talk to your doctor. They expect it for first timers-many STRANGE things happen to your body and you aren't expected to know what is going on. 

You always want to make sure the baby is moving properly and if it isn't DEFINITELY call. 

Chances are it's just the ligaments and muscles around the uterus straining and pulling, but you can NEVER be too safe!!!
