I've been having low, dull aches and cramps...just like before I would have my period. I'm 36 weeks along and I don't know what it could be. They last for at least a couple of mintutes. What do contractions feel like?

they feel like a very strong menstrual cramp and in the lower back and all the way around also your belly gets really tight and b___s up. and it will release and do it again and again. if you are having these pains then it is contractions and you need to monitor them and time them each time and see how consistent they are because not all contractions are real and its normal to have them on and off throughout the pregnancy. i have been having them sense 18 weeks and i am 30 weeks now and they are never consistent. to ease them the doctor says to lay on your side and to drink plenty of water because dehydration can cause them as well.

I can definately feel the strong mentrual cramp part of it, but I don't seem to feel my belly getting "tight".
