Menstrual Cramps Labor

So Ive been having a few small contractions all day (39 weeks and 2 days) they dont hurt too bad they feel a lot like period cramps. The only difference is that about halfway thru them I get a real sharp pain in my lower abdomen/ va___a area. I had my membranes stripped Wed and have been losing my mucus plug ever since. Could this be labor pains or am I just getting my hopes up for nothing? Does anyone have any idea? Oh and they are averaging about 15 minutes apart right now.

Thanks ChannY Im not calling the dr or anything until they are a lot closer togetther (5 mins or so). I just dont want to keep thinking these are real if they arent.

hiya, yah i know. its frustrating but the body is getting ready for labor. but if its keeps bugging you, you should go and get dilation check and whats not.
