Whine alert..

The last 18 hours have been miserable for me and I think its pushed me to a hormonal low. 15 mins after falling asleep last night i woke up with horrible contractions.. Just as I was getting ready to call the OB they stopped. Normally braxton hicks are just uncomfortable pressure for me but these last night were actually stabbing pain. I was up for 2 hours. I finally fell asleep and got 5 hours of sleep before DS woke up this morning.

Now I just feel awful and I'm still getting some sharp pain but not the contractions with them. Just the pain. My belly hurts so bad. DS wants to cuddle but just having him lean on my belly hurts. I don't want my baby to be born prematurely but I would love for the next 4 weeks to just go by super fast. Maybe a time warp or something of that nature.

Sorry to whine and complain but I just needed to vent. Thanks for listening!

I think I know what you're describing...I get the sharp stabbing pains when the baby moves his head around during contractions, and also sometimes just walking around or sitting when he bonks his head on my cervix. I don't remember it happening so soon with DS, it happened a few days before he was born. This time it has been weeks! It helps me to get on my hands and knees for a while, and also lying on my side for a while seems to get him to back up off my cervix temporarily, at least long enough to be able to walk around and get a few things done! Hope it feels better for you soon, if it is the same thing I experience it can be pretty excruciating, like worse than a contraction.

Yes you are describing the pain alot better than I am!!!! Thanks for the idea, I will def try that next time!!!

I did end up calling the OB and she told me I'm to stay on the couch all day and cancel all plans!! So here I am sitting on the couch. Luckily I don't feel up to doing anything so its not to bad but normally I don't do well just sitting for too long.

I think whining at this stage is totally justifiable, heck I whine everyday at this point Wink Sorry you are dealing with the pain, I am glad your OB told you to surf the couch for a day, I hope it helped!
