<p>Ok, so with all my pregnancies, I start BHs early and often; however, this is insane!  Saturday, I was nursing (kind of - she was sleeping) my 2 yo when I started having BHs a couple minutes apart.  I hadn't had any issues with this before, so I continued.  Well, they kept coming, so I decided to stop.  Well, that was the beginning of 6-8 BH an hour.  Fast forward to last night when they got really strong.  So strong, in fact, that they made my crabby.  When I woke to pee last night, I was having them.  I got woke up by a big one at 8am and then 7 more before I got out of bed.  They've been frequent today and very strong.  No cervical change.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm going by my former MW Saturday and she's going to show my DH some maneuver for sacral release that is supposed to relieve this.  I'm also doing 1 minute inversions 3x a day to stretch my ligaments, which are very tight and spasming and are either the cause of this or at least a factor.  Oh, and this happens even when I drink 1 gal of water and seems to happen more when I lay down.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Sheesh!  Anyone else having this problem or have had this in the past?</p>

<p>Same issues. Right along with tightness. With ds I could do butterfly sitting and lean all the way forward. I'm just so tight and tense. BH so bad I've had to go lay down a few times. Water helps, but not always.  I think I need to exercise more to get loosened up.</p>

<p>The technique at spinningbabies.com where someone wraps your belly in a scarf like a hammock and gets behind you and jiggles your belly is working wonders for my BH and ligament pain. In fact, since I started doing this technique(i forgot the name of it, but it starts with a r), I have had minimum ligament pain, which is GREAT.</p>

<p>Ashley, spinning babies has a short video on it <a href="http://spinningbabies.blogspot.com/2007/02/how-to-do-inversion.html" target="_blank">here</a>.  You can also do one on the stairs and the info is <a href="http://spinningbabies.blogspot.com/2007/02/how-to-do-inversion.html" target="_blank">here</a>.  I do the first one off my sofa and it works perfectly.  It feels soooooo good to stretch my ligaments. My uterus is so tight that I cannot make out any baby parts.  It feels like it's in a perpetual contraction.  I just started doing these and I have NOT been consistent with 3x a day.  I need to get in a schedule with it.</p>

<p>Strongmama, thank you!  I've read about rebozo shifting, but I didn't realize it would help with BHs. Come to think of it, it's supposed to help loosen everything.  I'll have my DH do it tonight.</p>

<p>My pleasure!</p>

<p>Well, DH did the rebozo sifting and I followed that with my 4th inversion for the day and guess what???  I had no problems with BHs last night and could even roll over and get up to pee without them!  Then, I only had 6 in 8 hours!  I usually get that in 30 minutes!  Wow, praise God!  So happy!  Thank you, strong mama!</p>
