Can contractions be one sided?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

For the past hour I've had contraction pain...very mild menstrual cramp pain but only on the right side by my hip and on my back... I haven't timed them or anything but they're fairly frequent. Is it possible to have real contractions limited to one side in the beginning? I have to be cautious as I have a 90 minute drive to the hospital and have fast deliveries but I don't want to jump the gun. I've also been getting braxton hicks for the past hour that seem to almost be alternating with the pain...I dunno. I had bloody show long ago and have had every other sign. 

 

Is it possible to have real contractions on one side?

DDC crashing but I wonder if it is possible that you have a kidney infection?

Never heard of it, but could it be that it just hurts more on that side, due to some pelvic imbalance or something?  

 

Otherwise, I'm in the dark as much as you.

I thought I was having one-sided contractions a few days ago (along with diarrhea and losing mucus). It was the whole left side of my abdomen and back. Turns out the baby was just really low and pinching a nerve. I've had every sign multiple times and still no baby. :/ Very frustrating.
