I am 31 weeks and 6 days and I have been having cramps like I am fixing to start my period what does this mean? This is my first time being pregnant also.

They are braxton hicks I had them from 33 weeks onwards and at 39 weeks they got worse very painful so don't worry hope I helped you

I went to the doctor yesterday heart beat is fine and she said that his head is down like he is ready to pop out

It may be that the baby is laying a certain way consticting the area or possibly lying on a nerve. Call your doctor and be checked out to ensure the heart beat is still a steady rhythm. You will experience wild and crazy feelings as you move closer to 40 weeks and some of the things your body goes through will make you think the baby is surely coming out. Be patient and get lots of rest. Coming from a mom of three you will be glad you did.

it probably just means your getting close, i had braxton hicks for a couple days when i was around 7 months but they went away and didn't come back till i had about a month to go. then they were here and there, sometimes they'd be consistent, sometimes they would go away for a day and come back the next. everybodys different though, i wish you the best and hope everything goes well :)

One thing it could be is those false labour contractions they call "Braxton Hicks" but keep an eye on it

hopefully not labor @ 31 weeks;anything after 37 weeks is considered full term so try & keep tht baby in there!go to doctor if you're having cramps it's too early
