For the last week I have had intense and frequent BH contrax. Most of the time I could get them to go away with drinking more, resting/putting my feet up, hot bath etc. However 2 nights ago I couldnt really get them to stop so I went into L/D. Wasnt in true labor and got sent home. yay.
I have noticed though if I'm not resting frequently or try to do "normal" activities they come back fast and hard. At worst they are over 13 in an hour and some can last up to 45 sec. I do not want this to turn into preterm labor as I am due in Oct.
I put myself on bedrest for a few days to see if they would help. Of course it did. How can I avoid being stuck on my butt for the rest of my pregnancy? I HAVE to work to support my house (it is a desk job that I can do somewhat from home) and have 5 other kids (one being special needs).
I wanted to smack hubby a few min ago. "So you are gonna have fake contrax non stop till you have this kid. Either suck it up or be stuck on your a$$ for the rest of your pregnancy and make us lose the house." - Thanks jerk
Please tell me there is a way I can do this myself. I dont have high blood pressure or anything like that and have been complication free until now.
