38 Weeks & Constant Cramps? Haleigh & Cali's Mommy 2 kids; Charleston, South Carolina 192 posts

So I'm 38 weeks & 2 days pregnant and for the last couple of hours I've had a horrible cramp that won't go away. It feels like a menstrual cramp, only more annoying lol. It kinda hurts, but basically its just more irritating than anything. I woke up last night around 3 and was having on/off cramps for about an hour that hurt sooooo bad!! I think that might have been contractions, but eventually I fell asleep and ever since I've been awake its like a constant cramp. Is this normal? What do you think it could be?

So it's like one continuous cramp? It doesn't stop at all?

Could be mamma...I denied my contractions despite being 41+13 and only ended up leaving my house when my waters broke and I needed to push!!! It was my second baby as well but I really forgot what they felt like and just got on with the pain as I had been experiencing similar pain for 5 weeks. How far ar they apart?

I can't really tell how far apart they are because it seems like its not going away at all. Like every 10 minutes it feels like its starting to go away and then BAM it comes back with a vengeance!!
