Let me first say that I was induced with DS. I never dilated, effaced, or really had much more than BH contractions with him.
At my appt. on Monday I was 1 cm, 60% effaced and I've been having contractions all week. Not consistent, not painful, but more noticeable and intense than anything I felt with my first pregnancy.
So last night was strange. I went to bed at 10. Around 11:30 I woke up feeling really off. I went to the bathroom, and then I started feeling nauseous, chilly, and started shaking uncontrollably. I was also having contractions, the same as all week. Not painful, but definitely there. I seriously peed like 5 times in an hour, pooped (sorry, TMI), and continued feeling bizarre. I thought my water was possible leaking (but now I think I was just sweating). I fell asleep on the couch probably around 1, then woke up at 3 drenched in sweat but feeling as normal as I possibly can right now and have been all day. I took my temp. in the midst of all that and it was normal.
I've also been having constant lower back pain/pressure. It feels like a weight is sitting on my lower back, just at the top of my butt. It doesn't go away.
I've had a crazy week. Yesterday was the last day of work for me, and I spent it and all day Thursday training a temp which drained everything out of me. I'm starting to wonder if maybe the end of work caused me to have an anxiety attack last night, but I don't know what those feel like.
Do you think this was a sign that labor is coming soon? Something else? I'm stumped. It was beyond strange, and I've never felt anything like what I went through last night.
