For the past few weeks I seriously feel like I've been on my period! I've been having really strong cramps. And the past two days have been even worse, They are pretty intense. I'm managing just fine, but isn't this a sign of early labor? Or does this happen to a lot of people for the last month?

I don't feel like they are "real" contractions yet. But it's really hard for me to tell.

I think it's probably your uterus getting ready. I've been crampy many days as well and they just feel like dull period like cramps. I think it's normal at this point; as long as your cramps aren't getting closer together and timeable, I think you're fine.

I only feel crampy occasionally, but usually when I do I'm having some strong contractions. You might want to call and see what if anything they have to say about it, could mean something's going on.

Yep, I'm feeling that too. And actually, my REAL contractions felt like period cramps all the way up to 8cm.

I also started feeling AF type cramping towards the end of my pregnancy. My true contractions though were more a pain that radiated from my back around to the front of my lower belly, along with tightening.

I'd say it's normal during the final weeks too. I've been feeling the same way.

put me on the band wagon of cramping... on thrusday night I was cramping pretty bad and there was a pattern to it... thats why my midwife thought I might be going into labor... but they tapered off... so we were all good... she just said that I was in preterm labor... so meh I guess we just have to wait and see... good luck Leanna I hope they either turn into something soon for you or just leave you alone! lol

My cramping has been pretty awful the past month or more. Just another lovely symptom of the end of pregnancy.
