Feel pretty stupid ATM...

Ok so for the last couple hours I "think" I am either having BH or regular contractions...... I honestly have no idea what the difference is. I have NEVER had BH with any of my others. With all of my boys I didn't feel my regular contractions except for when I was on a high dose of pitocin and even then they weren't the way women describe their contractions........with my DD I felt some regular ones and that's why I went in at 36 weeks.....they felt VERY similar to what I am feeling now.......IDK what to do Beee

How regular? I would drink a bunch of water then lay down and time them. According to my MW, if you have more than 4 and hour, BH or otherwise, head to L&D. My L&D accepts you after 20 weeks, I'm not sure if it's the same for all.

I hope everything turns out to be okay for you and your LO! P&PT

I think the difference is if they are in regular intervals and if there is pain. With BH my stomach would get hard but there was no pain. With contractions there was pain. I hope they went away with some rest.

They went away FINALLY.....the thing is I was already in bed when I had them so...so much for laying down to get rid of them. And the whole pain vs no pain thing is whats gonna throw me since I didn't feel pain with ANY contractions until my labor was augmented with pitocin......then it was minimal.....

That's so scary! I'm glad they went away.
