Time them: if you are having contractions every 5-10 minutes, go to your delivery center/ hospital. If your contractions cause your cervix to change, you may be in labor.
Otherwise, if they are far apart (more than 30 mins apart), they may be "practice" contractions.
Keep yourself hydrated to calm your contractions. ...Read more

35 weeks pregnant and really bad cramps in pelvis as well as sharp pain that only last for like 5 seconds in pelivs and vagina.

Pelvic pain: As you get closer to your due date your pelvis has to stretch to accomodate your new baby. It is not uncommon to have sharp pains and pelvic pressure at this gestational age. Also when your bladder fills you will have small contractions called irritability. These aren't labor, but do hurt. However, if you want more reassurance call your OB/midwife. Someone should be on call even on a Sunday. ...Read more

35 weeks pregnant.U/S shows cord around baby's neck.OBGYN said baby is fine and doesn't seem too concerned.Could cord strangle the baby before birth?

Im 35 weeks pregnant, I just got up from sitting then a sudden pain in my top right side of buttocks feels like a bone is out of place, what happened?

Im 35 weeks pregnant, I just got up from sitting then a sudden pain in my top right side of buttocks feels like a bone is out of place, what happened?

One of two things: Either the baby was putting pressure on a pelvic nerve when you were sitting and stood up or the ligaments in the pelvis "shifted" slightly. The ligaments that connect your pelvic bones begin to "loosen" during pregnancy to allow for the baby's head to pass through the pelvis at labor and the pelvis itself can slightly move as a result when positional changes are made. ...Read more
