36 weeks w/ cramping pre-labor symptom?!? cherryberrylemonade 18 kids; Hawaii 946 posts

I'm 36 weeks and 2 days with my 2nd. I've been cramping and having lots of painful BH's the last few days. I also haven't gained weight in a while :( I am hoping to AT LEAST make it to 38 weeks. I'm confused because I never had cramping or BH's with my 1st and my doc isn't seeing me every week, he's still seeing me at every 2 1/2 weeks!!! They just told me to go into L&D if I start getting contractions :evil: I'm wondering if these are pre-labor symptoms. Anyone else have similar experiences? If so when did you end up delivering?

I've never had BH (well until today I think maybe) but I had lots of preterm labor and just painful contractions that never amounted to much and I still went to 39 wks with my first and 38 wks with my second. If it's just bh then I don't think it means alot.

you should go to L&D its better to be safe than sorry. i was having back pain (no cramping) a couple days ago so my doctor told me to go make sure it wasnt back labor cuz im almost 37wks. i went in & it showed that i was having contractions & didnt even feel them! i was already dilated 1cm & 50% effaced so the dr said im in pre labor. every woman is different tho
