Did your labor start with period type cramps? cuterebelme Due January 11; 3 kids; Hickory, 743 posts

I'm trying not to get to excited because I've had way to many times I thought this could be THE time and it wasn't yet, but this morning I woke up with a lower back ache that has since went away but a new symptom is that I have pain that keeps coming and going (nothing consistent yet) in my pelvic region that feels like menstrual cramps. I'm due tomorrow and would REALLY love to get this labor process started. I'm dilated 2 cm and am 80% effaced.



How many labors started with "period" cramps? And how long after did they become regular?

No.

I had period type cramping non stop EVERY DAMN DAY from 30weeks until 41weeks.
In the days just before I went into labor everything just up and stoped and I had no pain whatso ever. Then when it started it didnt feel like period cramps. just like spasms or tightinging of my pelvic MMs.

I had period like cramps all day yesterday at my appointment and my doctor told me it's my body preparing itself.. so it could be the start for you. This morning I haven't had any at all but I can no longer see my belly button ring so I know I dropped a lot more..
