Abdominal Cramps At 32 Weeks

Carol - September 13

Is anyone experiencing abdominal cramps? I've been cramping for the past 2 days. Is this normal? It's more like menstrual cramps but without the bleeding.

My doctor said that any time you have cramps (period cramps) you need to see him right away. I had it, and I only had a UTI, but it also might be that your just having streching pains. Sorry

Kelly thanks for responding! I went to the doctor yesterday and he told me that itcramping is normal and that he also thinks I'm working to hard. I get up at 5am every morning for work and usually don't get to sleep until around 10pm. I guess between getting up 3 -4 times a night to pee I don't get much sleep. Anyway, he put me on bed rest for the rest of the week which sucks but I know it's for the best.

I've been getting these bad cramps too, and I'm only 30 weeks. Should I call my doctor??

I am 30 weeks and tonight I started having stronger than normal menstrual cramps a 1am and am still having them at 5:30am. I am having regular bowel movements, no bleeding. I don't know what to think of it. At first I thought it was brackston hicks, but after reading some I know it's not those. All I know is I can't sleep and I suppose I'll try to get a hold of my doctor tomorrow. How are you doing now?

My doctor told me that mild menstrual like cramps down low are nothing to worry about unless they can be timed or contract all the way up the uterus. He said to drink more water.

I am 32 1/2 weeks and have been having the cramping since last night. Some of the cramps are a bit stronger and more uncomfortable but I generally just feel like I have steady achy menstrual cramps. Not sure if I should go see the doctor either. I am going to take it easy for the next few days and see if that helps.

Hi all. I am just about 37 weeks now. I started getting the same type of "menstral like" cramping between 32-33 weeks. During one of my doctor visits, the dr said that it was typical. However 3 days later I found myself in the hospital for 3 days. Aparently I was having preterm contractions. I was given medication to try and stop the contractions as well as steroids to speed up the developement of the baby's lungs. I have been on modified bed rest ever since. If you are contemplating going to the doctor, i truly recommend you do so. I hope this info helps...Lots of luck to all of you. Oh and by the way...I am still contracting.
