Hello-me posting again. Just curious if any body knows what this is. I have been having menstral type cramps today. They have subsided a lot but not completely gone. I am having lower back pain sorta too. But its more like my bones in my lower back/sacrum area are rubbing together, but some times feel like an ache too. (does that make sense) The menstral type cramps are some times radiating down the fronts of my legs to my knees. I also am having intesnse pressure in the pelvic region. I am getting occasional b/h contractions. Nothing to close together. This is my second pregnancy, but my first was over 6 years ago and don't recall feeling some of this. I am 34 weeks 4 days along. Any body else having this?

I had it... it was b/h for me. Nothing consistant and it was that crampy feeling. I had it from about 32 weeks until my son was born (I was induced at 39 - never dialated on my own)

Sounds like your body is just getting ready for labor. Crampy could be caused by the baby positioning head down and "dropping" and the bones rubbing, I've heard a lot of women talk about this, its just things widening and getting ready! Doesn't mean you'll go into labor soon but your body is just preparing! Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy and try to stay comfy!
