Oh My GEEZ BH's!

Man have the BH's been rough lately. frequent and uncomfy! last night i had like 3 in a row in what seemed like 5 mins and on the last one i even had DH put his hand on my belly to feel the craziness! he seemed quite amazed how tight my belly gets. I am really carrying a basketball in there. i think Addisyn is falling cuz not not the BH's, the pelvic pressure has been really bad this week. my doc said they start internal exams at 36 weeks, but i go tomorrow for 35 weeks and almost hope they do one just out of curiosity(though, no i will never ask for an internal, LOL). i'lll tell the doc about the pelvic pressure and increased BH's and see if they say anything about it.

and side note, my ob's office moved temporarily since the lease was up and they are moving to a new building that won't be done for another 6months, but the temp office is located next door to a greaters! i see that being very bad for the next 5 weeks! DD has to go with us to the doc tomorrow and i already promised her a bakery doughnut if she is good(though i want one, so she will end up getting one too:) )

Hmmm, does this mean I need to keep my cell phone turned up and check it frequently for possible texts?? LOL. Here's hoping they ease up for you, I know how uncomfy they can be so close together when you're NOT in labour. Almost seems like torture lol.

LOL, enjoy your doughnut tomorrow! :lol:. Nothing wrong with a little snack after an appt Wink

I've had more contractions since Sunday. I wish they were doing something productive but I'm sure they aren't. They wouldn't be so annoying if I knew they were doing something at least. Drink lots of water and KUP!

I asked my doc at my last appt (34 wks) if she'd do a cervix check, because I am curious too! But she wouldn't do it, said I had to wait a couple weeks. lol darn it

My 'BH' are really, really uncomfortable now. They feel like they are pushing baby down and I have to pee Lol and I get some weird sensation in my cervix, they are doing something though since when they checked me Wednesday I was 2cm and 80% effaced. I know they checked me because of my other kids coming early but if you explain the BH maybe they'll decide to check you anyways. Are you going back weekly now or are they not seeing you until 37 weeks? If they do your GBS they just might be okay with checking you

I'm having frequent Braxton Hicks too... it's starting to get annoying! I hope you have a great appointment! I love Graeters, but we don't have any around here. We sometimes go when we're visiting DH's family (in KY). YUM.

No BH's here but definite pressure!

What is a greaters?

I hope you get some answers and reassurance!

I've been having LOTS of BH too - mostly when I have a really busy day running around and I don't get to eating dinner until later. I'm sure they're not doing anything though, I had tons of BH with DD for the last 2-3 months also.

Ditto on the Graeters - must be a local thing? A donut sounds yummy though!
