A bit of background info from Hailey's pregnancy. I ended up with REAL bad pelvic pain. It was so bad that when I got out of bed I literally walked like a penguine. Trying to walk normally was out of the question. I also had to lay straight as a board to roll over in bed, and walking down the stairs was almost impossible. If we went out of town shopping at say, Walmart, a store that we can walk around for a couple hours looking, pondering, running back to the other end cause we forgot something etc, I seriously was in ALOT of pain for the next 2 days.
I also started contracting alot which in turn made me skip the every 2 week appts, going on WEEKLY appts starting at 30 weeks. I was placed on mild bed rest where I just sat back and let everyone else do most the cleaning, hubby dealt with the kids etc. I could do some stuff but not as much, so that Hailey stayed put at least to term.
Fast forward to now. The pelvic pain has started but thankfully it's not as bad as it was, and I hope it stays that way. A little bit I can handle, a whole lot like before, I can't. And, I've realized just now that I've been having contractions the last couple days :eek:. They don't hurt by any means, but having had 4 kids I know how my belly feels with them, and so far this morning I've had 3 - all about 15 mins apart - yikes! The other day I said to hubby my belly felt weird, I thought maybe she was just moving around, but when they move at this stage, you feel them, and I didn't feel her, so I left it be, but now I realize it's contractions. Sigh. I DON"T want to go through what I did with Hailey. I didn't like how alot of things went leading up to her birth, and her birth in general and I went through emotional hell, and I explained already how I felt at the beginning of this pregnancy, which again, more emotional hell. I don't think I could handle alot of this all over again :confused:. Seems the girls give me issues. With Heather at 8 months I was in the hospital a few times for NST's due to contracting but made it to her due date.
Hopefully these are BH contractions and don't lead to anything :eek:.
