Cramping and BHCs...

So for the last two-ish hours, I will have an insanely painful cramping sensation that lasts 15-60 seconds followed by a BHC that is super tight and lasts a good thirty seconds. Im not incredibly worried, but I am slightly nervous about the intensity of the cramping. Anyone else have this happen to them?

Ive been having the BHC for a long time now, which I already mentioned in a previous post. I didnt over do it in the last few days, the longest I was on my feet was on Halloween so I think anything from then would be long gone and not worth a worry.

I dont want to call my on call OB because I feel like I call for every little hiccup even tho I have only called a few times. I dont want them thinking I am one of those crazy over react to every little thing kinda moms lol.

if you are having PAINFUL cramping or contractions it would be something to pay attention to. have you had more than 4 in an hr? i know some people who didn't really feel contractions but have intense 'period' cramping. if it continues DEF call or go in. in the mean time drink some extra water, take a hot shower. even if it goes away you should mention it at your next appt. better safe and be THAT silly mom then let something go a little to far...take care of yourself

This is CRAZY because 2 nights ago I had the same thing happening and it was PAINFUL. I ended up just toughening it out because I didn't want to look like a dill for nothing.. How are you feeling now ?

Kristen- The cramps were about 20 minutes apart followed by the BHC. I drank 3 glasses of water, emptied my bladder and laid on my left side for an hour and they went down to about one every 40 minutes. Im still having the BHC [About 1-2 and hour] but the cramping is significatly reduced [maybe ever 2 hours I'll get a crampy feeling]. I have an appointment the 14th if it gets worse before then I'll call if not I will for sure let them know what has been going on!!

Trina- How weird!! Lol I am feeling a better today, I tried not to stand or do to much today just to be safe. Im glad Im not the only one who doesnt wanna look like a nervous nelly! lol
