Im wondering if it's too soon for braxton hicks?
I have been having crazy tightening in my belly that hurts. Its been going on for about 2-3 hours and I'm starting to get worried.
In an actual room in L&D. They are monitoring me for contractions, which are about 10-15 minutes apart and mild. .7cm dilated. BP is ok, babys HB is great (140) they think the contractions are due to stress (I had a huge 2 day fight with Shane and worked outside earlier today) but they want.to make.sure nothing progresses.
Got lots of fluids, small dose of magnesium sulfate (sp?), no further dialation.
I am back on modified bedrest (which I was taken off of since my bp has been so good). Going in for a cervical check Friday. I am not supposed to be in the sun for longer than 30 minutes, I can take short walks and grocery shop ect as long as I'm not alone, Drink nothing but water (I usually do that anyway lol), no lifting anything heavier than Kaylee. I am still crampy but she said that may last a few days as well as some spotting since I had at least 20 cervical checks.
Baby is well, great Hb, and on the quick u/s s/he was sucking on his or her hand.
That was not fun, every possible bad thing that could happen went rushing through my head, needless to say I didn't sleep very well. Going to try and nap when Kay does (whom also refused to sleep because she wanted her mommy).
Thanks for all the positive vibes ladies! They worked.
