I'm super crampy today...feels like AF is coming soon. But it's hard to be upset about it because it's pretty much the only pre labor sign I've actually had!

My crampiness went away greensad.gif I'm jealous of all you crampy ladies! Hope it means something's happening!

I'm now crampy enough that I keep checking to see if my period started.  I can barely sleep because of the pain.  Trying to sleep through contractions wasn't enough?!  At least I got a break with those!  Although sometimes the cramps subside for a while and come in waves, more like contractions would.  Please let me have this baby soon.  If I have to deal with this for two more weeks I might kill someone.  ;-)

 

I really hope the memories of the misery I've experienced throughout this pregnancy fade, or we will definitely not be having a fourth child in the future!

I found bouncing on the exercise ball really helped with the cramps yesterday.  I'm going to keep that trick up my sleeve and hope it keeps working.  I was in so much pain, mostly coming in waves like ctx, but also constant AF like cramps.  Bouncing really took them away.

Have you ladies noticed BHs becoming more uncomfortable as the baby grows? Seriously, when my womb contracts there is just more baby sticking its bony parts into the walls than there was a few days ago. Didn't really anticipate that.

I know this sounds mad, but I can't tell half the time if I am having BH/ctx or if it's the baby pushing.  He's so big and balled up now that most of my uterus is hard anyway.  I have to try and lay on my back and feel for soft spots.

 

Am I the only one who is having this problem?  Sometimes it's obvious, but mostly not.

I get this too. I have to feel my fundus to tell if it's a BH. If it is a contraction, the whole top is hard, but if the baby is just pushing then only the half with her butt sticking out is hard :P

I feel the same way! My stomach is hard all the time!

 

i am feeling much better, I think I definitely had a virus. I finally got a good night sleep last night, however i started feeling much better Saturday night and was actually able to eat. I am still crampy, but lots of water or a big glass of coconut water seems to help most of the time.

Glad to hear you're feeling at least a little better mama!

 

I'm not feeling too badly crampy, so much as like my whole vulva is going to implode and just fall right down to the ground from pressure.  There is just so much PRESSURE.  DS's head was 14.75 inches.  This pressure has me worried that this LO might be even bigger.  Stupid husband and his giant nerd brain.  Gah.
