So I have been having "menstrual like cramps" which have seemed to have gotten worse each day since the middle of last week... had my check up today..They say it's contractions...I have had them in every hour... Hard to say exactly how many but at least three an hour.... My back will also cramp ... Which I suppose happens with contractions...any one else having early contractions? Anyone else have them in previous pregnancies? If so what is/was the interventions for you and the baby? I called the dr again but they didn't call back..the didn't seem to concerned ...should I be?
