Urgg! The past 45 minutes I have been experiencing what is like light cramps in my lower stomach..I don't know if it's just cramping or if its the baby moving and causing pain..or if its contractions...It's not that painful but it's definitely noticeable...

I get those a lot. Don't think they are contractions exactly but they definitely supposedly help you dilate, so at least they are good for progress!!

Thanks to *Sharon* for my awesome siggy! My pregnancy blog

I have been getting period like cramps for the last week or so now.. I'm guessing they are what have caused me to start dilating. Thank the lords! I've been getting the cramps today that have become actually painful.. And with the painful ones I've had tightening too, so I assum those are considered contractions with the cramps/tightening at the same time. I actually am having the cramps right now, full achy cramps. Driving me crazy! I would give anything to go into labor tonight really, but ideally want to wait till Sunday when ill be 37 weeks. I'm just done with all these feelings and questions what is going on ALL the time!!

i've had cramps for a while now, some of them pretty painful. I've not felt a single BH or regular contraction this whole pregnancy, so i have no idea what they're supposed to feel like.

That was the feeling I was feeling and was told they are contractions just as they get more painful and more frequent then go to L&D

My contractions feel like cramps that start in my lower back and migrate around to my lower belly causing my whole belly to get super hard...... just wish they would get regular! They are so random!!
