Unhappy Cramps at 23 weeks

Hello everyone, for the last two days I have had some cramping and I'm freaking out. Yesterday I called the doctor and she told me it sounded like contractions and told me to go home, rest and drink fluids and to time the contractions. She said if they were ten minutes apart to go to the ER and she said to take it seriously. The contractions were about an hour apart so no need to worry. Today has been a little different, I don't have the same pain but I am cramping. I don't know what this means and I am so afraid. The baby is moving around as normal and I feel ok except for the cramps. I am only 23 weeks.
Any ideas?

Re: Cramps at 23 weeks

What kind of cramps are they? Like the kind you get with an upset tummy, or gas, or like menstural cramps? If you were havign contractions earlier, you might ought to go get checked out at least.
Good luck!

Re: Cramps at 23 weeks

I too have just started to feel cramping last night/today and I am 27 wks. I guess cramping is the way to describe it - seems to be constant though and at the very bottom of my uterus area - about an inch higher than my hip area. Not sure what Braxtin Hicks feel like or if this is just from Uterus stretching. Baby is moving a lot but worried cause I fell last weekend and although everything seems fine it worries me. May not even berelated thouhg. Thanks for help.

Re: Cramps at 23 weeks

i'm felt really bad period type cramps since about 26 wks or so... Dr. said it was normal.. just things moving around.. stretching... sometimes it feels just like i'm going to start my period.. he also told me to time them if i could just to make sure theyweren't contractions.. but they were so irregular i didn't really worry about it... and i'm 36 wks now and everything's fine...
