I'm 33 weeks pregnant and at least 10 times every day I get awful pains in my uterus, mostly the lower half. It hurts bad enough that I can barely walk. The worst of it lasts for 30 seconds and then starts to un-clench. It started around 20 weeks but went away after a month and started again around 30 weeks. I am not dilated any. This is my third child, 5th pregnancy (2 miscarriages at 10 weeks).
I asked my OB about it and she laughed and told me to "suck it up and deal with it" (I'm not going back there). I tried to get a midwife to use as a back-up for UC and to help answer question about these pains but no luck
If I knew this was completely normal I could relax, it just doesn't feel right. I drink tons of water and try to take it easy but is there anything else I can do? Will this lead to pre-term labor?
