WEll 2 nights ago I was feeling like normal but then i went to lay down and started having really bad pains on my left side of my stomach. I tried rolling to other side & that didn't help. They weren't horrible, but it was not stomach issues or gas-which is what hubby suggested. He ended up calling the nurse & she said to take some tylenol & drink water & if it wasn't better in an hr to go in. Right before the hr was up I must have fallen asleep.
I think it was contractions. I should know b/c this is my 2nd. But last time it was more crampy and down low when i slowly went into labor & was going in to be induced same morning. Was it just baby moving maybe? I've been fine since. Just got mereally nervous/anxious b/c I'll only be 34 weeks this wed.
You know, it's tough for me to answer because apparently I was having contractions and didn't know when they hooked me up to a monitor. So I sad something like I thought it was the baby moving, and they told me, no, it was contractions. Now that I was hooked up to a monitor, was told that is what they were, I can feel them more, I think. But it was probably what they were. What is funny is I had the same pain with my first and she was induced, and I have been having these pains for a long time. I don't think I'll go early at all.
I think I had ctx last night! Well, worse than usual I mean. I felt terrible, had to breathe through them, and even cried for two. DH got me calmed down. I am going to call my ob today, I'd rather see her than have to drag the kids to l&d late at night. Obviously they weren't labor, as I am still pregnant, but I'm wondering if they dilated me any.

glad to hear i'm not the only one who doesn't know for sure if pains are contractions or not. it made me super nervous since i'm almost 34 weeks. i go to my appt tmrw early in the am, but we're expecting more snow & i'm not looking forward to driving in it. i'm a clutz w/o pregnancy or snow-much less both of them. I don't think she will check to see if I'm dilated.
This is my 4th and you would think I would know what they feel like but I swear for like the last week or two I have been so crampy but they eventually go away and dont seem to be progressing. This morning, before I got out of bed they were every 3 min for almost an hour. Got the oldest ready for school and they went away. I was sure we were going to L&D today. I still feel out of sorts but nothing timeable. I really want this baby out early but have never gone early before!!!!
