Fourth you ask? Your body is still full of pregnancy hormones as you adjust to life sleep-deprived with your new baby outside your womb.

It sounds so stupid but they are different right. Today (off and on) I have had PMS type of cramps (Low and mid). But I also ate some chilie.... I have tooted a little but not much. So wondering are PMS
(labor) cramps the same feeling as gas cramps...

I am wondering abt every little thing because we are not past EDD!.

In the same situation..past edd...oh well. We won't stay PG forever. LOL *sigh*

BUT, I have read that labor CAN feel like bowel cramping. I would say if it's getting stronger or more consistent then take it seriously..otherwise just sigh and ride it out.

hmmmmm, sounds suspicious. My labor pain started off as gassy cramps. This could be the start of something....KUP
