Feeling different

Today I have started feeling cramps in my lower belly and have been getting a sharp pain down in that area. I'm 34 weeks is this normal? Will I know when I start having contractions?

    You could be having warm up contractions called Braxton Hicks. Do they go away when you move around? If so that's what they are.

    yes, they do go away but the cramps have been constant for about 45 minutes.

      I went to the Doctors to get checked, they put me on a run around because I'm having a home birth and they don't "support" it. But they checked my cervix and monitored the baby and said everything was very normal and healthy. I went home and took an epsom salt bath and had my back adjusted yesterday and feel much better.

      Hi, my boyfriend and I have recently found out we are having a baby, a little unexpected but now that it is becoming reality we are very excited!
