I have been crampy, contracting, Braxton-hicks-ing. None of it is consistent but it's getting stronger and happening more and more every day. However, all day today, after I pee, I have a HUGE contraction and get even crampier.
What's the deal with that?

i can't offer a reason, but i have also noticed that after i pee i get a contraction too. maybe just our bodies reacting to the space created by emptying the bladder? i have no idea!

yup, me too... peeing makes me contract. Just like sex, standing up after sitting, walking to the kitchen, and all manner of other things. Are they CHANGING my cervix? no.... but they are there.

Well, at least I am not alone.
Aren't the painful contractions that aren't doing a whole lot of anything FUN?! Can you feel my sarcasm?
lol

I feel your sarcasm and return it fully. LOL! I am SO ready to have this part of pregnancy over with. I wish I could make myself go into labor already. Bah!

That's how I was! I think going to the bathroom allows you to relax your bottom more- opening up for stronger contractions. I peed a LOT when I was in early labor because it made it come faster I think

Good luck!
