Dilation sensations vs. Contrax

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I don't recall this with my first but sometimes I feel distinct "opening" feelings in my cervix...it must be dilating in minute amounts....

At other times, I have actually hardening of the uterus-Braxton Hicks.

Anyone else????

me too mama. Especially the last couple of days and especially even more last night->this morning. There are times where my cervical area/pelvic floor HURTS almost like a burning hurt...I cant explain it. I feel alot of pressure on on my hips when this is happening. Ive also had alot, I mean ALOT of hardening and tightning of my uterus.....mostly painless. I figured the painless tightning feelings dont mean much and arent doing anything....am I right?

I'm a big fan of the 'if our bodies do it, it probably isn't useless' philosophy. While BH contractions probably aren't causing significant dialation, they probably are helping to prepare you somehow - maybe by helping the cervix efface, or move baby into position, etc.

It is funny how I complain to DH all day about feeling miserable, but I LOVE feeling any sort of cervical pain - though I haven't had anything as intense as you are desribing. It sounds good to me!

I have been having twinges inside as well. Not really sure what that it is, but I am sure they are doing something?!?!?!?!
I have loads of BH too. I am doing EPO vaginally at night, but not sure if it is working, but since not hurting why not??? I wonder if working because my cervix is so darn high, I can not reach it. I just stuff it up as high as I can & go to bed.
We are almost there!!! Hang in there!!!
