Starting late yesterday afternoon I started having some painful cramps. I have been having braxton hicks for weeks now and at my last appt I was 1cm and "pretty thick" but that was 2 weeks ago....These seem to be getting closer together, but they are kind of hard to time, last night i had 3 that were about 30 minutes apart. and i know they are getting stronger but they aren't super painful, just kind of, uncomfortable and two or three of them have actually hurt.

There is a lot of pressure down there too. not like, an urge to push or anything, just pressure and it kinda feels like the baby is stabbing me if that makes sense lol. The thing is, i haven't seen any blood or anything. I never did with hannah either, but I was induced with her so this is all new to me.

what do you ladies think??

ugh, I do too. Hannah's progressed quickly, but like I said I was induced so I am sure that had something to do with it :/

contractions doont always have to be painful. however i think the key is to see if your stomach is tightening up. hopefully this is something for you and you wont end up being induced. good luck hun!

my stomach is definitely tightening. it goes from a stomach to a boulder for about 40 seconds (give or take about 10) but they aren't getting any closer together, and they aren't following any kind of pattern at all.....just getting longer and more uncomfortable :/
