I woke up this morning to a horrible pain in my stomach. Its NOT round ligament pain...I know that pain. And I know its not that. This is an on and off, cramping feeling like contractions. It happends every 5 minutes maybe..and is REALLY painful. There is no bleeding at all. It hurts in my back and lower pelvic region.

Ive never had contractions or braxton hicks contractions in my 3 pregnancies. My babies are all c-sections. So I am not sure what this is or what to do.

Any help??

i started with braxton hicks that hurt very bad at 15 weeks and by 28 weeks my body was trying to go into labor. i am now 36 weeks almost and i have been in the hospital once a week for preterm labor since 28 weeks. I have also been on meds i had to take every 4-6 hrs to stop me from going into labor. You should mention this to your dr. Also try increasing your fluid intake

drown yourself in water- seems to help a bit. Been in the hospital on and off with contractions and pre-term labor as well, water and rest seems to be the only thing that "helps." I'd go in if you are worried as well, best of luck.
