im very aware that the mom who has 6 children is probably an expert compared to the lady who has 1 or 2 children but i need advice. yesterday i started cramping, not bad. it felt like pms and it was more annoying then anything usually i can get it to stop with alot of water and my meds. which they did, so i called it an early night and went to sleep. this morning i woke up around 4am cramping again. i took more pills and laid back down. today i can feel them all around my belly, front, back and up high. but again they are not coming in a timed order its all random cramps some are 10 mins some are 5 mins and then we go back to like 15mins.

    i really don't want to go in for something stupid like false labor but again i was 28 weeks yesterday and 3cm. i know my baby will most likely be ok if born now but i don't want to have a 28 weeker either. plus i just got out of the hospital i really don't want to be readmitted just to sit in a bed and watch t.v. all day, eating bland hospital food and missing my girls. what should i do? and advice on how to get these cramps to stop?

I agree or at least call the doctor and ask them. Are you up and around alot? They might tell you to stay in bed unless they don't stop at all. I know it sucks to have to go back but it would be worse if your water breaks at home and you have to drive the 45 mins to the hospital in premature labor. Good luck, hope he says in longer but glad you made it to 28 weeks!

 I think with your circumstances you need to go in ASAP with my 6th labour I was oly in labour 45 minutes from the 1st pain your baby will need special care so you really want to make sure hes born in hospital.

 newbaby - I agree with stickybeans.. I think you should at least get it checked out and let the docs know what's going on. Better to be safe than sorry. ya know?  I have thought of you almost everyday and have prayed that you keep that little guy in there for as long as you can! 

I don't know how to get the cramps to stop. Maybe a warm bath and some quiet time?  But I would def at least call your doc and let him know what's going on. 

Please keep us updated and I hope the cramping stops.. or at least don't get any worse. Thinking of you! Happy

Hi newbaby, so glad you've made it this far. I think it's definitely a good idea to get yourself checked out, especially after your recent scare. Will be thinking of you and your michael. X

I'm 34 weeks and had this the other night. Insane pms cramping with nausea and then my stomach tightening (contractions) every few min. I waited it out since it was 10 at night and the pain was uncomfortable but not intense. When I called my dr the next day they freaked even though it had stopped. I had to get my dh to come home to watch our kids and race to the hospital. In my case it was for nothing- major drag... BUT they did a cotton swab test claimed results tell you whether or not you will deliver in the next 2 weeks- mine was negative- took about 2hrs for the result- maybe you could go to your reg dr and request that? Hope everything is ok. GL!!

I agree with everyone. Get checked. It can be such a huge pain to go for nothing..ive been there, lol. With DD3 I was having pains for 2 days...VERY painful pains. Finally one night I woke up at 2am and the pain was severe. All I could do was hold my belly & rock back and forth...I really thought i was in labor. I took a bath & got so nauseous in the tub that I threw up. I knew i had to get checked but I too was worried id make the drive in the middle of the night for nothing. I drove myself to the hospital (DH & DD1 & 2 were sleeping and I didnt want to bother them incase it was nothing) went up to L&D (I was 27weeks) got checked for about 2hrs and they said it was nothing pregnancy related. But I told them I was hurting SO bad it HAD to be something! One nurse asked, whens the last time you had a bowel movement.....I thought about it & realized it had been about a WEEK AND A HALF since I had BM! She said that was probably it & i needed to go home & take a stool softner. I did. & later that day I felt SO much better. Lol talk about humiliating. My 3rd baby & i ended up in L&D in the middle of the night only to find out i was severely constipated. Lol. Always best to be safe than sorry tho ;)

With your history, get in and get checked.  Hopefully it's nothing but it's better to be safe than sorry.  I pray that all is fine.
