3rd Trimester

period like cramps and BH at 29 weeks?

Last night my doc sent me to LD to get checked because I had pretty strong menstrual like cramps coupled with getting some BH contractions 5 in an hour. Everything checked out fine cervix closed, no UTI, baby HR was fine. They didn't have an explanation and told me to continue to hydrate and relax which I had been doing all evening beforehand. Today I still have some minor period like cramps but not as strong as last night. Anyone experience this around 29 weeks?

  • Lurking....

    I did with DD, unfortunately, it never really went away and I just stayed that way the rest of my pregnancy.  Hopefully being hydrated will help!

  • I had the same thing happen to me earlier this week. I was 27-28 weeks at the time. I started getting a series of BH contractions while I was walking at a fast pace w/ lower back pain and abdominal pain. I got nervous that it was preterm labor so called my doctor. She didn't have me go to labor and delivery but told me to take it easy, drink lots of water, and go to L&D if it continued. Luckily it subsided. It was scary though. It's hard to know what is serious and what isn't, especially as it's my first pregnancy. Hope you are feeling better! 
  • I just experienced a similar sort of situation at the beginning of 26 weeks. I did end up in L&D, then on bedrest for 2 days to make sure everything as ok.  After monitoring and an ultrasound they found no cause for it and said my cervix was high and closed.  Hopefully your's gets better too.  They thought that I might possibly have an irritable uterus, but are currently just keeping an eye on it to see if it happens again (since that was only 1 week ago).

  • I just started feeling this now at 29 weeks. It's hard not to worry. I'm not sure if I have had the BH just yet but, have certainly felt some period like cramps. I feel it more on one side than the other. I'm hoping that it doesn't get worse before my appointment this coming Tuesday. This is my first pregnancy. I wish you the best of luck & hope all is well.
