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...
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
