I'm only 32 weeks now, and I have been having this kind of cramps like once a day......for abt approx. a minute.. I am guessing that it is BH contractions. I'm really not sure...

my doc said BHs can feel either like menstral cramps, or like a really hard belly. Sounds like you've got BH, but if it happens all day and doesn't go away, I would call your doc.

I have had BH since I was 14 weeks. Now that I am approaching the end(37 1/2 weeks), I have noticed the BH are stronger, longer, and sometimes feel like menstral cramps.

I get them periodically throughout the day... & get them more & more as I progress through pregnancy. I'm 32 weeks now. My ob says it's BH contractions. I think so too.

Brenda, I am having the same sort of pains and back pain. I don't know about you but mine are definately not Braxton hicks, because my tummy doesn't tighten. Also I have been on medication for premature labour contractions since 27 weeks ( I am now 34 weeks) and these pains are totally different. I think that it is a sign that prelabour has started. Having said that prelabour can go on for up to 4 weeks. I had the same pains with my son who was born at 35 weeks. I hope that this helps. I'm afraid that there are no easy answers when it comes to pregnancy and labour.

I get them too. I am also 35 weeks. My doctor asked at my appointment last week if I was having any contractions and I said I wasn't sure, but that I was having some cramps and he said yep those are contractions. Mine are spuratic so they must be BH.
