What's Happening!?!

Been up for an hour now.. Feel like someone has their hands around my waist and squeezing with superhuman strength!!!! Front hurts.. Back hurts.. Laying on the left side and downing fluids like nuts. Emptied the OJ carton.. Then the milk carton.. And now on to water. WTH is going on....

Side note - DH snorts in his sleep every now am again ha!

Sounds like contractions lady!! Are you timing them?

Annnnndddd at it again at 336am.. Sad

It's so random when they happen and how long they last.. Some last for 10-15 seconds some are constant for up to 30 seconds. I may call the nurse today for some feedback..

I have been having them randomly too. I told my doctor last time that I thought I was having braxton hicks but she said no and blew me off. Since that appt 2 weeks ago, I have had stronger ones here and there. Some enough to take my breath away. But not timeable or in any kind of pattern. The most I had in one day was 5. But I will be asking again today because I have had bad back pain too this week. Enough pain to wake me up even after tylenol. :/

GAH!! Why didn't I think to take some Tylenol????

Ok so I was in the same boat you were in.. there's no pattern to them.. and no real timing cuz there's just no consistency.

Part of me wonders if it was some Chili I had at a birthday party yesterday that my body simply just didn't like.. :confused:

Aweeeee, sorry to hear you're in pain. I hope it eases up.

Christine - You've gotta love it when your doctor blows you off. Sad Wow hey?

Braxton Hicks? I think pretty normal at this stage. I remember that kind of feeling when I was towards the third trimester. Maybe dehydrated too. Hope it doesn't last!

With all that I drank, I think the dehydration theory is the one to go on.. I've never craved so much liquid in my life! lol..

All is well today.. I'm chillin in bed, not doing much of anything on this day off. He was awake earlier but sleeping now.. I may be right behind him. lol..

Ugh Braxton hicks. I haven't had them yet.. Thankfully. Not looking forward to them but yes drink lots of water or liquids. I hear its worse if you are dehydrated!

I brought it up with the dr. again today and she wasn't concerned. I have also been having bad back pain and she said to try a maternity support belt. If that doesn't help she recommended a chiro. We shall see...

I've been going to Chiro for a month now. I was having a LOT of hip pain and couldn't even walk for 10 minutes! I'm feeling better now...hopefully I continue to do well. He has me on a 3 times a week for 6 weeks...I hope that goes down soon as my coverage is almost all used up and January isn't even over. Sad
