severe cramping..
Non consistent contractions, but bad cramping and severe muscle type pull feel on my left side below my groin.. is this normal? When I stand up the pressure of his head literally brings me to my knees..normal.
Call OB. Get husband home? L&D? When I have a contraction I'm pretty sure I'll die from it.

Re: severe cramping..
Is the cramping and muscle type pulling consistent like ctx or is it constant? Have you tried taking a bath or shower to see if it relieves it at all? :hugs:

Constant, worse with ctx and in between..feels like its from the ctxs.

Re: severe cramping..
I don't ever remember pain like that until I was well into labor... I agree with trying a warm bath or shower. If you're still in a lot of pain I'd at least call your OB.

Yea I'm gonna call contractions aren't really consistent though..

Re: severe cramping..
While most people have consistent contractions during labor, not everyone does. My sister was in labor for 46 hours with very painful cramping/contractions but they didn't form anything resembling a pattern until the last hour or so. I was with her for the last 13 hours and can attest to the fact that she was indeed in labor the whole time despite the lack of a normal pattern.

Hope you are holding your babe this morning!
