We're having our 3rd baby and I have a LOT of ctx... but this is normal for me. I'm almost 27 wks and rested WAY more than normal today... tonight I had ctx 3 min apart for a while then 4 then 5 then 7 then finally 9 and after that they went away (2.5ish hrs total). My last pg I had ctx no more than every 5-10 min 24/7 from 32 wks. Had to go to L&D at 34 wks b/c of leg swelling (I've had lots of knee surgeries so clots are a real concern pg or not) and was having ctx every 6 min like clockwork and got early labor warning but didn't deliver until a day shy of 38 wks. Same w/DS1 (early labor warning around 32 wks but didn't deliver until after 41wks). I was in denial about my 2nd labor until I was in hard active labor b/c I was sooo used to having ctx at 3 min I thought nothing of it. Does anyone else just contract a lot? Any tips on easing it? I rest, drink lots of fluid, etc but nothing I do seems to change anything.
