New chat thread for the next week or so!
tourist - Irritable uterus is pretty much as you describe, contractions that don't actually do anything. I have a tendency to have a lot of braxton hicks but they've kicked in earlier this time. I attribute that to having a very well-worn uterus I did start dilating around 36 weeks with my DD and was 4-5cm by 37 weeks and had several nights of real, painful contractions. She didn't make an appearance until just after 39 weeks, though. I attribute that to all of the stress going on with my DH's deployment, I don't think I'll have those issues this time around.
Sarafi - I feel your frustration with the appointment system in the military, I'm glad everything with your pregnancy is okay and I hope things improve with the pelvic rest
As for me, I had my 16 week appointment today. I'm 16/3 and measured 17. I had a feeling I'd be measuring a little large but that isn't odd for me. We had some concerns about twins last time but only found one strong heartbeat a couple of finger widths below my navel so I'm pretty confident there's only one baby.
