Hi, I'm due Feb 29th

 

Last night I woke up with a terribly sharp pain, like menstrual cramps only way more intense.  It doubled me over.  I drank loads of water and lay on my left side.  It faded.  I got two more pains just like it, very sharp, below my belly button, and then faded. 

 

I thought that was the end of it. 

 

Then today after napping a lot of the day I get up to make dinner and I get another sharp menstrual pain in my lower abdomen...so intense I could not move and had to lean over a chair.  it lasted several minutes.  At this point I realized I needed to call midwife and she recommended I go in to the hospital to get premature labor ruled out.  She told me these pains were not normal. 

 

So I'm about to leave for the hospital right now, but before I go I was wondering what this sounds like to people here?  Has anyone ever had pains like this so early on (34 weeks)?  Do you think I'll have my baby early?

 

Ok, gonna go in right now to get checked...thanks for any responses.

I haven't, but just wanted to wish you luck at the hospital. So sorry you are going through this.

Urine test came back clear. I had a few contractions on the monitor but they weren't severe and I could hardly feel them. My cervix was checked and I was not dilated. So they sent me home and said that the bad pains were caused by the position of the baby...

Hope I don't have any more bad pains like that until I'm at least 37 weeks...

That's great everything came back clear, but I second what the other poster said about kidney stones. A good friend of mine just had the same thing happen to her and she was very late in pregnancy when it all started. Maybe worth a check if it happens again?
