I've been really crampy for the last couple of hours, and started monitoring it for the last 30 minutes. I get the tightening/contraction like feeling every 5 minutes that last about a minute. It's driving me crazy. I don't know if I should call the dr or not...I'm 32-33 weeks...

If they are coming every 5min I would call the dr.

my dr. told me to call if it happened more than 5 times in one hour OR if they were regular (like every 5 mins), so I'd definitely call...

i visited the hosp this weekend w/ bleeding and i was having minor contractions. they said you need to go to the hospital when they are 5 minutes apart and lasting for 1 minute. you better call the doc, or go right to labor and delivery because if it is pre-term labor, there still may be a good chance of stopping it!

Fefer1 kate is right - get checked out - better safe then sorry.

They'll tell you to drink two cups of water then lay on your left side for an hour and time them and if they keep up at the same pace or get worse to come on in. It can be normal at this stage to get them every few minutes as long as they don't keep up like that for an extended period. It never hurts to go get checked and the worst that'll happen is you sleep better tonight knowing everything is ok.

thanks everyone - I called the doctor and they told me to drink lots of water and rest for a while to see if it got better before coming in. The eventually went away but it lasted about 8 hrs in total, half that time fairly regular and uncomfortable. Today I feel fine! :) Kind of scary though - 33 weeks is too early!
