I started having contractions last night and they continued for several hours. They were completely different from BH. They were uncomfortable & painful. My back & right side kept hurting. I could time them. They were ranging 4-6 min apart but the frequency didn't increase to the labor contractions I had with DD. I've been monitoring my pee color & I appear hydrated. I drank a ton more water last night and attempted to "sleep" it off... although I didn't get much sleep.
I didn't call my OB because they would've told me to go to the ER since they can't diagnose over the phone. I was operating on the basis that if they got bad enough then I would call &/or go to the ER to be checked. I was not looking to be in the ER on a holiday plus I don't want to pay the $100 copay to go either unless it is absolutely necessary... KWIM?
So far this morning, I've only had some BH on & off. But my right side still hurts. It isn't a strong pain but more of a constant light pain that is annoying.
I'm guessing I overdid it this weekend. If you've read any of my posts in the chat thread, you know that I've been whining about having to do so much this weekend.
So... here's my question(s)... How concerned should I be about these contractions? When do you cross the bridge to preterm labor?
What do you think?
