So I've been having HARD contractions for over 3 weeks now, off and on FULL contractions, they come about every 7 min when I have them and last anywhere frm an hour to over 8 hours. Its been horrible....

and besides that, I know have an insane feeling that my stomach muscles have been pulled. It feels like when you p/u something the wrong way, and get a pulled muscle, its making it hard to breath!...is this some weird pregnancy thing that I didn't experience w ds or could it actually be a pulled muscle

I think you could, anything is possible especially with ctx over 3 weeks!!

I'm keeping you in my thoughts hoping for your little one to make a debut soon (but not too soon!!)

I have the same problem, actually some of my muscles even tore! : I've been dealing with them for over a month now. I've been having contracting for months, I was put on bedrest for 2.5 mos until 37 weeks. After that the contractions died down - now I'm 41+2 wks! So my uterus muscles are tired and sore. I told MW yesterday my stomach feels like I've done 1000 situps w/o the benefits of the pain! No tight tummy and no baby yet - it's not fair!!

I use my heating pad on the area when it gets bad and that seems to help, though sometimes I have to sit there for quite awhile waiting for them all to relax. Contracting while doing that makes things a little tougher.

Hang in, mama. Try not to do much lifting or using the muscles for a few days and they'll get better. If you do lift something be very careful. MY DDs all know if they need hugs, etc, they need to come to me and/or climb on a chair so I don't have to lift them.
You're not alone!!

yeah, what's up with that?? i was supposed to "prepare for an early arrival," too. nearly 38 weeks now... not that i'm complaining! i'd rather she had all the time she needs, but think of all the stressing out for no reason.
