Lower abdominal pain........13 weeks

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

 I have a pretty stressful couple of days.....lots of braxton hicks yesterday and today. And yesterday i was having some sharp contraction like pains.....just for a few seconds on the couch, i changed positions and it went away. BUT today im having some very constant dull abdominal pain......should i be worried? Ugh.

I can't tell you whether to worry or not...but hug2.gif. Hope you feel better soon, and talk to your midwife/ doctor about it for sure!nod.gif

I would call your midwife or doctor just to be sure. I have been having sharp pains when I move wrong but its more like my muscles are stretching not at all like you describe. I hope its nothing serious.

I feel like that sometimes and it's no big deal which isn't to say what you're feeling is no big deal, of course. How are you doing today?

Are you getting enough water?  I usually don't have BHCx this early unless I am dehydrated.  It's still a battle to drink enough from 1st tri. morning sickness.

Much better today, still a lot of Braxton hicks but completely painless. We did spend all day at the zoo, but I took it as easy as possible and now my DH and DD are making dinner. Lol. I have still been feeling movement, doesn't seem as often, but it makes me feel better every time i do feel it, you know? I have an appt with my OB on Friday anyways, so I'm just going to talk to her then unles something changes of course.

And I thought it was early for Braxton Hicks too, but it's all of the time in the evenings. Completely painless, until that point. I have been having them for about 3 weeks now I guess. With my dd i was having a lot too, had to go into the hospital for monitoring and some test to see if I was going into labor at 20 weeks since my contractions where about 6 muns apart. I dunno what that's about. And I think I have been getting pleanty of water, i drink like 3 32oz cups every evening and at least 2 more throughout the day....But come to think of it, maybe I wasn't drinking any water! I had tea, and a sprite, and maybe 1 glass of water! That could be it!

Thanks mamas!
