Okay so I'm not sure what to do...I am at risk for preterm labor, so keep that in mind. On top of having inconsistent contractions I have started cramping even more. This is not my first rodeo with preterm labor but I never had cramping just contractions. I have no other symptoms just feels like I'm going to start my period ugh. Should I call the doctor now or wait until the morning. *side note I mentoned I had a little cramping at my appt a week ago but she said as long as there are no other symptoms to just take it easy....that's all I'm allowed to do anyway for the past 5 weeks.

Oh and I thought well may I just have to go poo and I did
but noting has changed as far as the cramping goes


Update*
Had my check up appt today and I mentioned the cramping I have been experiencing so she checked me very gently ( any mommas who know what it feels like to be really checked it's uncomfortable to say the least) she said I'm fingertip and she could go further but didn't want to push it or start anything. She is very happy and a lot less concerned about me having him now then she was 6weeks ago. She said she never thought I would make it this far especially since I didn't go along with getting the 17p progesterone weekly shot. I'm up 35lbs oh my lol. She said she is not encouraging I have him yet or for another couple weeks at least but things are looking much better. ..so all in all a good appt ;-)

I would just lay down, drink water if it gets worse than call... if it stays same or improves don't call them just rest.

Maybe I'm just paranoid. .but it seems to come and go in waves sorta like contractions but just cramps in my back and front but no tightening in my belly...I'm laying down and drank a bunch of water so hopefully it will subside...

Hmm ... I would probably call my doctors office just to be sure. Consistent cramping can also be a sigh of preterm labor ... hope it goes away for you.

I'm feeling better this morning so thinking it was just false but trying not to stress.. I really want to make it to my doctors first goal of 32weeks which is Tue and would love to get to at least 34wks since after that they will not stop my labor, i really do not want to go through all of that...

This is why I absolutely made a huge deal about them changing my due date at a 4weeks ultrasound. My lmp due date was 9/10 and they move it to 9/30...that is absolutely not right..He measures in between and even the doctor agrees bit said she can't change it...ugh okay rant over

^ lol Glad it was a good appt and little man is content to hang out for now. Kinda crazy about the due date...I thought them pushing mine back 6 days was huge. If you go with your gut and split the difference you are at that 34/35 week mark
