33 weeks and cramping

Posted by on Nov. 11, 2016 at 12:02 PM

I'm 33 week and this morning I have been having cramping in my lower stomach. Anyone else have this, could it maybe be a sign of preterm labor? Both my other children were term babies so no real reason why this one should be any different but I know every pregnancy is different. And a few weeks ago the dr did say I was 1cm dilated that she thought was due to contractions I had been having :-/ any opinions would be appreciated. Thanks ladies

The good news is you can easily be 1 or 2 cm till 40+ weeks.

If you get time able contraction lasting close to 1 min (4 or more an hour) get checked. That's what my doctor says anyways, what does yours say?

Also cramping is normally a sign to drink more and or slow down.

My dr has told me if I get more than 4 contractions in an hour to call. But this doesn't feel like the contractions I normally get, this is more like cramping and some pressure. I have been drinking water all morning and haven't done anything really pretty much have had my feet up and just taking it easy.

I felt that way with back cramps and Braxton hicks earlier this week. It went away on its own after a day or two. I do still throw up a lot though so I assume I never have enough fluid in me.

Also there is stress, growing, all that fun stuff. The end tends to not feel good. I feel shitty just walking around the store, I chalk it up to live human in a human. Lol

If your worried I'm sure your doctor will happily check you to ease your mind. Maby ask them to check for a UTI as well as cervical changes. Gl

You can be dilated a bit early and still make it to term. Contractions/cramping are normal in the later weeks. If they increase in intensity or frequency, then go in.
