Im 28 weeds and I get this menstral cramp feeling in my lower abdomen. It's a really sharp pain and this morning it lasted about ten minutes. It was hard to move! Is this normal?

that happened to me too when i was doing laundry...in the end of your pregnancy that can happen...it called false labor..i was in so much pain i couldn't even walk i had to have my daughter finish the laundry...just take it easy and unless you are having contractions one to two minutes apart i wouldn't worry too much..

I dont think that that is false labor...Ive had two children so far and neither one came with sharp pain...that sounds like you pulled a muscle or something like that...braxton hicks are not sharp pain either but more of a replica of a contraction which is a tightening of the uterus/stomach...different from a sharp pain...If you get it again I would call the doc and have it checked out just to be safe...good luck

thanks girls... after talking to a few people i realized it wasn't a contraction. I'm not sure the reason for the cramp... my next appointment is this week so I'm going to ask my doc about it

I have those same pains too. My doctor told me that it's because the baby is either laying on a nerve or that it's just growing pains from expanding outwards. I wouldn't worry too much.
