I'm 29 weeks and I've been having constant cramping like period cramping for close to an hour. DS is moving around and I've drank water and laid on my side. Is there anything I should watch out for?



I never had many BH with DD.

I had BH regularly starting before 20 weeks and lasting the duration of my pregnancy. They could get pretty intense. Nothing I could do really helped them though. I just had to wait them out. I'm not sure if an hour is excessive though.

5-6 in an hour is kinda when you should call.

I had that at 22w. Was told it was "normal". I delivered my son 2 days later.

I'm kinda nervous bc I am getting ready to do my biophysicals starting next week. i didnt have a high risk pregnancy with dd like i am with ds and this time around has me paranoid. I'm going to try some more water and relaxing and give my ob a call if it doesn't subside.

Idk. I have had pretty constant BH with this pregnancy and my cervix was still closed. It was from a UTI. And I've had severe BH contractions that were as painful as labor. I guess I would say if you have consistent contractions for over an hr that are lasting 1 minute apart, call your OB and see what they say.
