36wks + 2 days consistent cramping and low back pain. Baby n Jeni Krogman Due February 3 (boy); Melvin, Iowa 93 posts

Since Dec 30th I have had consistent menstrual cramps and back ache. I called the doc Monday as they continued all day and night. They said it sounded like a Bacterial infection. Went in did a vag exam. They put me on monitor and never said I was having any good contractions. Called Me Weds and said it wasnt BV but just a yeast infection. Prescribed me Diflucan. I picked it up Thursday b/c Weds our fridge tried starting on fire.. Anyhow The itchy stuff went away but the cramps and backache remain. Tried everything you are generally told to try. Today I acutally had pains I could time. They came sometimes two sometimes closer to 4 min apart. By the time I dropped my daughter off at school they have crapped out. Still crampy consistently but no longer time-able. Do you think its early labor? I have a doc appt Fri. I am not having any bleeding or fluid leaking but it is really annoying. I do not think it is just plain old stretching. I think they are inconsistent odd contractions. The doc wants me to go a bit earlier on my own b/c I am trying for a vbac. Any similar stories??

Sounds similar to what I've been experiencing & I just had an appointment yesterday and talked to dr about it. Seems like just BH is all my dr said and not to worry about it.

Due the 4th but they had changed my date from the 16th of Jan to the 4th of Feb. 3 whole weeks! At my 34 wk us baby is estimated to weigh 6#3 oz. My daughter at birth 40wks +5 days weighed 6# 10oz! Have another US Friday. He was measuring 35wks 5 days. I knw they can be wrong but I feel at the end kf my pregnancy like I did with my daughter. Dr suspected extra fluids but they are normal.
