    Def not round ligament pains. I have those every now and then too, but I've been having ctx since at least 27 weeks. Been to L&D twice already because of them. They calmed down after I chose to reduce my activities like taking the dog to the park and doing less walking than I used to.

    I eventually got some sleep but still contracting and cramping. Waiting for the doc to call me back.

    So the doc sent me to L&D to get checked out.

    The cab ride there made the contractions so much worse, in fact while I was waiting to get triaged I couldn't just sit, I had to bend and stretch and move around to make it feel a little better. But then after they got me into a room the monitor only picked up 4 small contractions in the 90 min I was hooked up. I'm sure I felt more than that in that time, although they weren't as strong as previously. I think they put the monitor in the wrong spot, the nurse put it on my belly button this time; previously it was placed above the belly button closer to the fundus and slightly to the right.

    They did an internal exam and said that my cervix has softened and is a finger-tip dilated but is still fairly long so they sent me home. Have an appt with the doc on Friday and he'll probably check me again and we'll take it from there.

    I have decided not to write my exams on tomorrow & Thurs. I just do not have the emotional reserves left to deal with all of this and I am nowhere near prepared.

    I completely understand where you are coming from! Trying to do school has been extremely challenging. I think I'm going to be taking off next semester.

    Well you are definitely getting closer I suppose. But dilation/effacement can change so quickly... some women stay dilated for a long time and other just from nothing to all the way in no time.

    I'm so sick of contractions.
