    Ok so I dont get much cramping I get normal slight cramps, but today they are very uncomfy. They come and go and I am alittle concerned. I think I may drink water to see if dehydration is a factor but this is strange. I haven't had much cramping for awhile. Few weeks infact so I am hoping it is dehydration or my uterus is almost above my pelvic bone. Anyone else in around 14 weeks with cramping bad? It's not the legement pain you normally get when you move etc which hurts to the sides. This is actually harsh period cramps where you might need midol or something. Thanks

    hi Janisdkh,
    i also had a lot of bad stomach cramps up until a few weeks ago. its just everything stretching and moving i think, i wouldnt worry unless u start bleeding. i've found my bump has grown loads since around week 14/15 so its probably just growing pains xx

    Iv had a few moments of pains hun , But nothing to last too constant .
    They do say you can start getting very mild braxton hicks from around your week, Allthow dont quote me on that .
    Good luck . xxxx .

    Ok got down 2 glasses.. Two to go. I am pretty sure I gave myself contractions from dehydration... I had this with one of my pregnancies but not this harsh and not every few mins. See im confused about contractions. I have never gone into labour on my own. I have had braxton though. Thanks guys. I am drinking room temperature water so it works right away almost. I will let you know how I feel in abit.

    Well guys looks like I might of brought on contractions like I said. I called the hospital and they told me to lay down on my left side drink alot of water and time them. They said what I described sounds to be early preterm labour caused by dehyrdation. They were coming every five minutes and they hurt. They did subside some though because of the water. If they dont stop I need to go to L&D and might need IV or meds depending. Here's hoping they stop! I will brb

    Oops forgot to say 10 minutes too because they werent consistant lol just all over the place...

    Ok ladies I did everything the hospital said. They eased up it's been 3 hours about and I still feel them. They also started to make my back hurt. Last time I had this I had IV but they werent this bad at all. This hurt. I will never slack on water ever again. I am resting up all day so you will see me alot more then usual.

    Yea these arent a tummy ache these are actual cramping and painful. They got bad enough to make my back have them. THank god its not preterm but it could lead to it. Thank god I drank water. I have had 10 pregnancies. 3 beautiful babies and the rest I lost. Im known to not hold my own well and this scared the shitt out of me. My 1st I lost at 14 weeks so you can imagine :( Eventhoguh I feel alot better now I am slacking on house work and doing nothing. I am not even cooking dinner tonight LOL So this lazy momma will be sculpting all day
