I had several bouts of the strong ctx that radiate out into my thights & back a bit along with several bowel movements, but of course it stopped. My guess is I will have this off & on for a few days or maybe even a week before anything REALLY happens.
So just try to relax. It could be the start of the real thing or false labor jsut getting your body prepared, either way just try to take it easey & rest. Look at it this way if it is the real thing & you are already this tense you will be in for a long road. Try some deep breathing, positive visualizations & affirmations (I have faith in my body, I picture my cervix opening wide to allow my baby easy passage, I am calm!!!
) Hey & if nothing else a glass of wine is great for helping you relax, but only 1 glass
Rest & relax mama, let your body do the work it needs to & knows how to do!!! Sending you much peace & calming vibes
