I’m about 33 weeks along and today woke up feeling period cramps, lower back pain, and queasy
My pelvic area feels like I’ve been sitting in the splits for an hour.
I also think I’ve dropped… Not much if at all
Is this normal? Do you think I’m headed for early delivery?

I just got a list of symptoms from my OB yesterday that should signal me to call his office. Most of these are on there. Call your OB!
ETA none of these are on the go-to-hospital list, just ethe call and notify OB list

Yep, normal. It sounds like your baby is dropping and your body is getting ready for labor. It doesn’t mean you’ll go early. I started those symptoms at 32 weeks and delivered at 40+6.
You will KNOW the difference between cramping and back pain (which can also be Braxton Hucks) and contractions. They do not feel the same at all. Personally? I wouldn’t call but… couldn’t hurt I guess.

That sounds extremely normal to me. I had all of that around that time. Try switching positions often and drinking extra water. You are unfortunately getting to the very uncomfortable stage of pregnancy. I’m at 37 and I totally sympathize.

Thanks all! I’m going to look for my OB’s list. I did look in one of my books and it does sound like normal braxton type things
