these BH contractions...

Me too. If I have to pee and don't go quick enough.. contraction..

If I sit too long and stand up too fast, contraction.

If I lay down and roll over too fast.. contraction.

If I carry my dd for even 2 minutes.. contraction.

Yup, that is me. I hate the breathless sweaty feeling that comes with it! It's almost over ladies. Until then I continue to hold my belly from time to time and scare the crap out of unsuspecting strangers Smile

This is me too. I've had a handful of more than allowed episodes and it takes me hours to get them under control. Only thinG that really helps me is tons of water and sleeping.

Yeah. The "best" ones are from stress. Think about dealing with car seats? Contractions for an hour. (Did you know that each car seat has 8 billion straps that go through several hundred slots in the plastic and they first have to be woven through the cushy part of the seat? We spent two hours on that crap and haven't even dealt with putting the bases in the car yet. And yes, we read the manual, that was the most ridiculously confusing bull crap ever.) But worse: think about dealing with work? Contractions for the rest of the day.

I had them like this for a couple of weeks, but they seem to have calmed down a bit. I am still getting them but they aren't nearly as strong. But they have woken me up at night!

Yep. I never had these with my first, so it is very strange!

Yeah, I get them standing too fast, or standing up from a hard seat.. If I wait to pee too long, and my personal fav, walking around the park for 3 stupid hours because my MIL and Niece had to see every single freaking booth. I had what I think were my first REAL contractions. Thankfully they eased up before i had 4 in an hour. BUT DAMN! They hurt! I wonder if I could get hooked up on some drugs now... and beat the Dec rush lol.

YES!! Me too. I get them for all the reasons already listed, plus if DH or I touch my belly, it goes into an instant BH. At my last midwife appointment she tried to feel the baby's position. Ur my body decided to do a BH the instant she touched me.

When we went for a walk last night, I had to stop and lean over through about three bad BH's!

Mine are getting more frequent too. I had one that woke me up last night and since we are in Philadelphia right now, we have been walking a lot. I think I had one for the entire 45 minutes that we were walking this afternoon, and then I have to stop and take a break....just from walking!!

Oh I forgot about the touching. I'm actually fine if my boyfriend, doctor or I touch my belly, but if anyone else tries to it hurts. Now that I've been stuck home for ages I don't see that many people but when I do it bugs me SO BAD when friends/family either touch my belly or get annoyed that I won't let them. It HURTS!!

I wish I could say that I sympathize with you girls, but I can honestly say that I've never had a BH contraction. In fact, I don't ever have real contractions until I'm actually in labor. The weirdest part is I don't know what a "normal" contraction feels like, because with DS1 I had horrible back labor the entire time, and I was induced with babies 2 and 3, so the pit contractions (I've heard and read) are 10x worse than normal contractions... so I'm in the dark on baby #4! I'm really hoping to go into labor naturally with this baby (no back labor, knock on wood!), so I'm waiting to feel those...

I'm having more BH too, especially last weekend when DH and I were in San Diego and did a ton of walking. None of mine hurt tho and actually when I was at L&D last night they kept asking me if I was feeling anything because the monitor said I was having a contraction every 10 minutes or so but the whole time I only noticed one BH. Did get the lecture on drinking more water and resting more often tho because I gone in straight from work and had been on my feet all day.
