38 weeks...contractions??? Amy Cron 3 kids; Clovis, California 11 posts4th Feb '13
i constantly am having pressure pains on my tailbone and pelvic area. then a tight pinched feeling that ranges from my hips or upper abdomen. its inconstant for the most part but close to 15 minutes aprat. what do you think i should do? i dont want to go into the hospital for a false alarm, i feel like they dont take me seriously at this place! i want to be sure im not over reacting, but its pretty painful and makes it hard to walk right.

Don't go to the hospital yet but keep timing. If they r getting closer together u could b in labor

It could be, I had my little girl at 38 weeks. Just keep timing them, when they are 5 min apart for at least an hour you should go in.

im just not sure if they are contractions. i was induced with my first son, and got an EPI right after that so i dont remember feeling anything other then the pressure right before he came out. the only thing thats making me go crazy is there are spaced out pretty well at 12-15 minutes apart. but they dont last very long
