I'm not sure, not even close to sure, but I think I MIGHT have been having regular contractions at work yesterday. I noticed that my stomach was hurting off and on in a crampy, going-to-get-my-period sort of way but didn't think much of it for awhile, until I noticed it only lasted about a minute each time I felt crampy. So I started timing when my stomach hurt and it was about every 10 minutes, lasting about a minute to 2 minutes, for at least the 50 minutes that I was counting for, and then I took my break and sat down for awhile and it stopped. I was also noticing that my belly felt like a hard ball for a lot of that time. When I was walking the dog later that night, no matter how slowly I walked, my belly was still in constant contraction-like form, just hard as a rock and made it very uncomfortable to move. And made me need to pee desperately- walking slow when you need to pee so bad you think you'll explode is REALLY really hard. And I peed right before I left the house, too!
My first thought is UTI, but I'm drinking tons and peeing tons and have no real urgency (most of the time!) or burning or weird smell/colour. I have cranberry juice that I'll start drinking just in case.
Any ideas? Is this normal, or not normal? When do you start to worry that those aggravating BH's aren't just BH's?
If it happens again I'll call my midwife ASAP, take an extra break at work, etc. Right now my #1 thought was to take it nice n' easy today so today I've... played with the kids, taken a nap, and spent way way too much time on MDC!
Need to run to work now (not literally, I'm driving!) but I'll check back later tonight.
