This afternoon I had a period of about 2-3 hrs of what seemed like very intense BH contractions. This is my 3rd pregnancy so maybe they are just more intense. They just seemed sort of painful/crampy along with the typical BH profile. I've been plenty hydrated so not sure what the trigger was. No pattern or increase but they were happening over a long period of time. I should of just stopped what I was doing, drank a huge glass of water and rested but I had to clean kitchen, make dinner and then run DD2 to the pedi as she's been with a bad cold for about 2 weeks and despite everything homeopathic that I've tried- I knew the complaints of her ears hurting and the still yucky nose was bad news. She'll be fine but has a sinus infection and dbl ear infection.
... anyways.... I was reading online and can't tell if this was "false labor" or just BH ctx that are more intense with the 3rd vs the 1st pregnancy. I hate to be an alarmist and start running over to the Dr's office. FWIW, I'll be 35 weeks on Sunday and never had any pre-term issues with DD1 or DD2.
