Extremely crampy all the sudden??

Any suggestions??

I just started my 25th week. And about an hour ago start having some period like cramping. I just took a dose of Cal/Mag , and am drinking more water. But I just kinda feel off. Also my uterus feels extremely heavy (common in pregnancy I know but its more noticable right now) and I feel some pressure. Baby did drop a couple days ago!! I am not sure what to think!! Contractions I am used to (as this is pregnancy #4) but menstraul like cramps aren't common for me. As of right now no blood, or extra discharge, although I keep feeling like I am gonna start my period!! Its very odd feeling!

When was the last time you ate some protein?

Maybe a little dehydrated?

I have the same thing happen all through last pregnancy and this one. I had to up my water intake and keep my feet up more often. I know not easy with other kids but it did help me

I didn't have any this morning, but just had some with my late lunch about 30 min ago!! Maybe it will help!

Thats always what I assume first, so I have been drinking extra water. Its definately possible! Hopefully it will help!

A little bit! I am not cramping as bad, but now I am extremely extremely tired! Like unable to keep my eyes open!! Guess its just an off day :(

I've been extremely crampy but its stretching cramps & RLP :( All i can do is drink buckets of water & relax really..... I am getting to where if I walk or stand any length of time the RLP pains get awful & my SPD is flaring up so sitting makes me stiff which makes it worse, I am damned if i do & damned if i dont so i just try to think happy thoughts Lol.

Hope you feel better!

Sounds horrible...this is very different! Stretching pains aren't much of an issue since baby dropped. I have plenty of room! This is uterine cramping. Probably from dehydration, or pressure from the baby. Uncomfy, but just one of those things. Its an odd day, I feel very blah, and tired, and baby isn't even as active! Hopefully after a good night sleep we will both be better!
