So, I think I have spent the last two hours or so with really bad braxton hicks I started feeling tight contractions that caused me to feel short of breath and make my heart race. So I drank water, went and laid down, but they didn't stop. I finally called my midwife, who was off call so I had to call the backup. She was nice though, and basically said if they aren't painful and regular and aren't accompanied by any bleeding or discharge, they are probably braxton hicks and I should take a bath and go to bed. I am going to do that soon...just had a late dinner now though!
I'm a bit freaked out! I have never had BH that came with shortness of breath pulse racing. I am still having a few little ones but not quite as bad. Now all my muscles are just sore and tense. Poor baby is down super low getting squished around right now I guess...her kicks are a little painful down there.
I hope they go away soon...yikes. Anyone else having anything similar lately??
