cramping

Anyone else having random inconsistant cramping? I have for the past couple of days now. Nothing strong, just feels like period cramps and it is only happening a couple of times a day. i was induced with DS so never dealt with this much

I have a little cramping once in a while but more braxton hicks. they would come lots for a couple hours for one day but fizzled and starts up again and then nothing. You are getting close. It is all pre labor

It's your body getting ready. I have that a lot lately. Sometimes I get them at regular intervals, and sometimes they are random. You can tell real labor because they get stronger and closer together and are more consistent (not one strong one and then one weak one).

BP was elevated today so midwife checked me because i needed to go have a NST, Bloodwork and BP checks at the hospital. Currently 3-4 cm, 50% effaced with posterior cervix. She said that baby was so low that she could feel the head right.there. Since I was checked i have had pinkish bleeding and consistant contractions. They said they could be from irritating the cervix and stop on their own, or put me into labour. They have been about 20-30 seconds apart every 3 minutes or so all night so far. i guess we will see! i cannot believe I am a 3 though lol

I had regular cramping every 10 minutes for 13 hours last weekend that stopped. I had random, stronger cramping this past Friday that never became regular. At my m/w last week, I was still at 1 cm. I hope this last round made some difference. It's so frustrating. I thought for sure I'd have delivered by now.

ugh, that is frustrating! i thought i would have too. My mw, her student, and the ob on call were all positive i was going to go in the next day or so after that. Havn't had a single contraction since.
