It feels crampy. It doesn't hurt the baby ~ why would the doctor do something to hurt the baby?

It can cause contractions and bring on labor if your body is ready. Or it might not do anything.

That depends. Some women don't get any contractions. Some women do. As with everything else in your pregnancy, everyone is a little bit different. Smile

Good luck!!

It is ok to be scared. Smile This is a big deal. You are having a baby!

Make sure to ask your doctor exactly what you should expect. This is their job, s/he'll tell you whatever you want to know. You just have to ask.
