Period-like cramps at 36 weeks. Mrs. Banks [Griffin's mom TTC since Jan 2014; 1 child; 1 angel baby; Warminster, Pennsylvania 3910 posts

I have been having period-like cramps since around 7. Normal? Just curious if I should have any concerns and if there's anything to relieve it. I was thinking about taking a nice, warm bath.

That's what my contractions felt like... And I had Kaden at 36w4d. He was born about 17 hours after the cramps started.

That's what my contractions felt like. I had them for 6 weeks before it meant labor but that is how they felt. How often do you feel the cramps?

Labor felt that way to me too. OP are you timing the pain?

It's a dull, achey pain then intenses a little, then just becomes dull again. Definitely feels like period cramps. I don't miss the feeling.

sounds like contractions weather they are real or bh...do they go away when you walk or stop moving? Drink water like a pp has suggested and see if they go away...If they dont start timing them.
