It's kind of hard to tell whats going on with baby in there.. if you can time your cramps or they become more unbearable then call your OB. If you can't time them then just drink water and lay on your side to relax to see if they subside.

The rule is if you get more than 4 to 6 per hour, you need to go get checked out. They could be real contractions, or something like a UTI. Make sure you're drinking a bunch of water and laying down until everything settles down.

Yep that's pretty uncomfortable if they wait until the end to turn. :) My youngest wasn't head down until he was almost 35 weeks. It was *very* painful when he flipped.
