I've noticed that the past few days when my stress level rises I get a contraction feeling in my lower abdomen. It's more than a BH but not my whole uterus...just around my pelvis. Am I imagining this? WTH is going on?

 

If it helps: I'm 33.5 weeks pregnant with my second child....and am now getting a BH style contraction.

 

And...I have a 19 (almost 20) month old so stress levels rise and fall frequently. (Especially considering he can't make up his mind whether or not he wants to use his potty and tends to get violent when he's bored)

Wow, I could have written this post exactly today.  I am also 33.5 weeks along.  I have had a very stressful afternoon at work.  I am feeling a somewhat constant "contraction" down low in my pelvis.  I have no idea what it is, but I guess you are not alone ;)  I have BHs often, just not all at once or a bunch in a row like it feels like now.

Yeah, when my son stresses me out I have to walk away and just SIT AND BREATHE for a few minutes. It's weird.

 

Last night I was getting BH one on top of the other...
