What are these cramps?

Of course I'll ask my midwife next time I see her- but I have a question for y'all :) I'm almost 35 weeks. Sometimes I feel stomach tightening which I know are BH. About a week ago I started feeling period like pains and they are totally different from BH. Does anyone know what these cramps actually ARE? Baby dropping/engaging, cervical changes, etc. I'm just curious.

thats a good question. it could be changing cervix, or even signs of an infection? maybe even stretching ligament pains from your growing belly.. if it is persistant maybe scedule your appointment sooner

Not infection- unless I caught it in the last 5 days. Last Monday I had period cramps all day and lost some of my plug. I went to L&D and they tested for all sorts of stuff, and at the time at least I didn't have one. They're always persistent but fizzle out :) my body likes to play games with me lol! Thank you for answering!

It depends on the pain and the woman. Every pregnancy is different, but your body is definitely in the home stretch and probably working to get ready.
