okaay, so im 36 weeks and probably 3 days. i been having crampy like pains ever since 8pm. it hurts bad but not to the point where i want to cry. i also feel pressure down below and it travels to my legs. i went to the bathroom about 5 mins ago and i wiped (tmi? sorry) and i seen gooey yellowish stuff, i asked my mom what it could be and she said it could be my mucus plug. well im just wondering does this sound like contractions? if not what should i do to get rid of the pain :/ ?
I don't know if they're contractions or not but I've been getting them as well. Mine hurt not to the point of making me cry, but they hurt enough to stop me in my tracks if I'm walking. Usually resting for a while helps me.
I find that sex will make it worse and so will doing a lot of walking.
If they become 5 minutes apart for an hour then id go in.
I just had this yesterday. They were contractions but my contractions were because I was dehydrated. Try drinking some water. If they dont go away I would start timing them.. When they get to be 5-10 min apart and lasting for more than 60 seconds call your doctor.
