Can early labor start out feeling like period cramps?


I've felt virtually no contractions in the last few days. Nothing that really feels like tightening or that could be timed. I have had a ton on period cramp pain. Sometimes it lasts for 10 mins sometimes an hour. Could this mean anything? I'm desperate for something to start

It is hard to say, different for everyone. But I have heard that some women feel like they are 'about to start' right before real contractions or labor begins... Sometimes this can go on a for a while though with no changes. Good luck, hope it is the start of something for you...

I wish I knew the answer to this. I have had period like pain all week but no other signs and I am due tomorrow.

I want to know this as well. The only pain I have been getting is period like cramps in my stomach for weeks now and since yesterday low back/hip bone pain.

It's so frustrating! This is the only time in my life I feel pain and I think "come on get worse!" and then when it doesn't I'm all pissed off lol

I have had period like cramps since last Sunday. So far, they have not turned into anything! My doctor said it is normal.

In theory, yes. Cramps are in them selves contractions to get the blood out, just very mild because blood isn't a baby and needs next to none of the strength. So it's plausible that cramp like pains in late pregnancy are the first signs of contractions, but like I said it's all theoretical. I hope something starts for you though
