I always get slightly uneasy any time I get cramping or pinching, but I also logically know my stomach is growing at rates it normally doesn't. Plus, being twenty weeks now, it's starting to actually harden and get glossy. My question is, at what thresh-hold does one say "enough" and call a doctor at? I've had some real doosies lately, where they were extremely uncomfortable and even painful to move through, however, they do disappear.

I get cramps that feel like that & mentioned to the APRN at my ladt visit & she said it sounded like growing pains... My Dr's office says to look out for the ones that are coming and going multiple times per hour & also the uterus hardening and relaxing which are signs of contractions. As if one is thinking so calmly when it's happening to them, right? lol!

I would say that if it is worrying you, it'd best to call.

About this time is when you might start noticing bracton chicks more often...it doesn't hurt per se but it does sort of take your breath away. True contractions will hurt way down low not as much in your belly the way bh do.

My opinion is that if you're concerned enough to ask, you should probably call your doc/midwife. They'll probably tell you to go to the bathroom, drink some water and lay down. But, it is always a good idea to let your doctor know.

I get what feels like period cramps throughout the day and they vary in intensity.. I talked to my DR about it yesterday and she basically told me that its my uterus growing and the baby stretching.. as long as Im not bleeding or leaking fluid Im fine and even suggested belly bands to help support me and tylenol.
