They were a 0. I went to the hospital after my water broke and was 5 cm. I didn't feel anything 'til 7 cm. I know, lucky. Yes, they can feel like strong period cramps.

Im 39 weeks!! I saw my doctor on Thursday she checked me and said I was 1 cm and still high and thick and went into hospital Friday because I thought my water broke but it didn't :( but when the girl checked me it didn't hurt at all does this mean my cervix thinned out? I have been getting cramp's but not really bad.. Hopefully its the start of labor!!

Everyone said "oh you'll know when you are in labor" and like you I just felt like I was getting my period. I only ended up calling my doctor because I started bleeding, when I got to the ER I was already 7 cm dilated, the nurses couldn't believe it because I walked in and was pretty much ok. How far along are you? You could always call your doctors answering service and have the doctor call you.
