I'm 7 months pregnant and I feel these weird pains. I feel these cramps in my stomach that feels like Charlie horse pains. Also I sometimes feel pains in my butt area like pressure and cramps. Can anyone tell me what those pains are?

Strep B is not dangerous to a mom!! Many people walk around daily with Strep B, doctors do not treat this because it is not dangerous, and does NOT cause pain. Though it can be dangerous to babies during labour, (I believe its like 1%) so yes they do treat the mother during labour to help protect the baby.



If you are considered about pains call your doctor.

I had similar pains with my second son, who was, at 10 lbs 8.9 oz, somewhat of a stretch for my 5'3" (if I am lying), 105 lb frame. I found one of the maternity belts to be highly helpful, especially, since I was on my feet a lot for work.



Good luck!

Every pregnancy isn't the same and with my daughter things were totally different. My son is giving me a little run for my money

Pamela, this baby is not my first. Yes I have gotten books and have read. But sometimes I find it helpful to talk to others who have experienced it more so than just reading a couple of books. This is my 2nd child after 10 yrs. being as though I'm older and I haven't experienced pregnancy in so long I was reaching out to others. So don't get it twisted. I'm well educated but I'm not a recent new mom nor am I a obgyn.. Keep in mind people are pregnant and hormonal your comment came off kinda insulting. But for the others thx for the advice. I have consulted the doctor as I always do when issues arise. Jus wanted to get new moms or soon to be moms input.

Could be the baby is so low that it is pressing on some nerves also. My first child was that low and I couldnt walk very far without having to sit down and rest cause of the pains in the tops of my legs around my butt and lower back.

it sounds like braxtin hicks i probably miss spelled that) or early labor I would talk to your obgyn and tell him or her but when i had this going on they told me my body was just getting ready but i took extra precautions and kept my feet up and laid on my left side as much as possible to help

I have IBS -- Irritable bowel syndrome. I've had pains like that when I am constipated. No matter what could be causing these pains you should contact your doctor.

My daughter in law suffered pains during her last pregnancy, after tests it was found she had the strep B virus, a virus we all carry but in some peole lies dormant, this can be dangerous for both Mum & Baby if not treated right, you need to ask your GP to test you so you can have the right care, antibiotics are needed during labour. Because of the right treatment my grandson was born healthy and well and there was no after effects for my daughter in law. Good Luck :o)

They could be what are called Braxton Hicks pains which are not real labor pains, but similar there to. Look up Braxton Hicks pains on line or in prenatal books at the library. Are you doing any reading about pregnancy? Taking any classes?



If not, why not? Children are miracles and the more we are prepared to receive and guide them the better persons they become.

I was shocked at how many weird and uncomfortable pains I had throughout my pregnancy! Like the others posted, most importantly if you can feel your baby move regularly and don't have bleeding, it's all positive. Little one is trying to fit in there and your body is trying to accomodate! Good luck!

I agree with some of the others... Also 7 months pregnant and it sounds like round ligament pains and possibly braxton hicks.

They are most likley round ligament pains. I'he been pregnant 3 times and each time they get worse. It's your muscles and uterus stretching. I would get them.so bad this last pregnancy that I could hardly breathe or stand up. They would last any where from a minute to five or so.

possibly braxton hicks(practice contractions preping you for the impending delivery and pains in back and butt may be where baby is engaging its head and bearing down on nerves and pelvic floor muscles,if your worried,run it by your community nurse or midwife,all the best for the future with baby........motherhood is the best gift in the world.

In the 4 pregnancies that I had, I always got those pains around this 7-8 months, it is very common and usually is just Braxton Hicks contractions or your belly stretching. If there is no bleeding and if you aren't in sevear pain you should be just fine. Good luck.

No problem! Lots of women think they're early labor pains and sometimes they're so intense it'll make you cry out. But, if you're not bleeding, not contracting, and the baby's moving you're usually okay.

Go to a hospital. That's a classic sign of either preterm labor or threatened miscarriage.
