Im 24wks & For a while now Ive been having cramping & Severe sharp pains in my stomach But the baby is moving alot, Last week(thursday night) I was having contractions that lasted for 2hrs & Since its normal to have bare-able contractions I just went to sleep & Woke up at 4am(Friday) with Spotting I called the doctor on call & he asked the usual questions have i had sex blah blah etc... But i havent had sex in a month so he told me to go back to bed & rest then call my doctor in the morning to be examined, I called, She never Called back, So the following tuesday I had an Appointment & I told her about everything she did a pelvic exam my cervix was closed no preterm labor, But it hurt so bad for her to do the exam(she said its just the pressure, I know the difference a*****e it wasnt pressure!) Im pretty worried thats something is wrong but my doctor just brushes it off , I feel like im Crazy this whole pregnancy has been soooo stressful I really Need the Cramping & Pains explained!!!!!!

If its severe pain you need to go in to be seen and checked out.

You need to be monitored in L&D

I don't think its ever normal to have contractions that hurt at 24 weeks, especially if it feels severe.

I'm 25 weeks pregnant and i've had that before. They monitored me and told me the pains were not contractions. To drink tons of water. Which I did, the pains stopped. Maybe try that, and call your OB.

I went to L&D at 21wks Because I walked into a 3ft Pole(in a parking lot) & Didnt feel the baby move for 8 hrs after so they monitored me for 3 hrs because I was having Contractions & thats what they said, But those were bare-able & so were the ones from last week. The sharp pains dont feel like contractions there usually on one side or level to my belly button & followed by cramping.

Go into L&D and get checked. I went in at 28 weeks with severe cramping and sharp pains in my lower tummy and ended up having a UTI
