Call your doctor!  They will know what you should do.

I’ve been having spotting on and off for the last two weeks, and they sent me to L&D this morning to see the doc on call for a pelvic exam and ultrasound to see if I’m getting ready for preterm labor and/or have some placenta complications.  Fortunately everything looks great.

 

They will know what you should do.  Call them…now!

I second @MARIE901: ‘s sentiments! Haven’t had it but sending positive “stay put” thoughts to you and LO! Let us know as soon as you talk to the doctor!

I didn’t have any warning and only managed to catch my preterm labor by accident (I had been trimming my bikini line and saw blood but didn’t know if it was from shaving or spotting; turned out I was dilating at 31wks).  Definitely call your doc, and they will probably want to see you to do an internal check.  In the meantime, hydrate!  Dehydration can cause contractions/cramping like that.  Prop your feet up and try not to worry.  Best of luck to you!
