Cramps

Does everyone else feel like they have cramps all the time? I have endometriosis and have horrible periods. I feel like that for the last few days. It is making me more grumpy than I already was. Sad Also tons of BH yesterday. Do I just need more water? I slept 4 hours during the day. And still slept last night.

More water can only help. Your nearing the end so cramping and loads of BH are to be expected especially after your first. I would keep an eye on intensity and frequency just to be sure you aren't in labor. But I think it's totally normal.

I had that one day last week. It was like harsh menstrual cramps where I'd normally feel them. I have no idea what brought them on or what made them go away though. Sorry. Sad

Thanks girls. I hope today is different, but I am hurting from tripping on top of all the other BH and cramping stuff. Sad It is going to be a hard day.

I've been having period-like cramps and my BH have gotten more frequent and way stronger. However I did notice that water does help. I had two days where I really slacked on it and the BH were really hard to sleep through at night. Yesterday I drank well over two litres of water, probably almost three...and I did feel a lot better. I hope that helps you at least a little, maybe with Tylenol for the back pain? Sorry to hear you are having such a tough time!!! Sad

Yep. I was just griping about this the other day. Non stop cramps all day long for almost a week now! I'm so miserably uncomfortable.

So those who have cramps- does it feel like a shooting pain? I am having cramp type pain on my ride side of my belly to almost my groin. All up that side. I had a couple the other night- just thought maybe I moved to fast. Its been pretty much all day long today- I hope this isn't here for the rest of the pregnancy- it goes just perfectly with the groin pain on my left side. Ugg- moving very slow today Sad

Water definitely helps. I don't get cramps during my period, nor do I get the BH contractions, so I can't offer you much more advice than drink more water!!! Hope you feel better soon!!

Yes, for me shooting pains like period cramps. Sad I also have a terrible ache and a lot of cramping in my inner left thigh. It is BRUTAL! I don't know how much longer I will last...

me neither! I never had this pain with my other pregnancies. The left groin pain has extended to my lower abdomen and now this cramping pain on my right side. It's not going to make this last month very easy if it stays.

I've had cramps for about 2 weeks now. They don't last long though. Maybe 10 minutes at a time. Often they come on in the middle of the night and if I'm already half awake they wake me up. Sometimes they go along with tightening of my belly so I am assuming BH?

I was sort of worried as I am only 34 weeks, but my doctor said it's perfectly normal as the baby moves down and puts more weight on the groin area.
