1 Bump

7 hours and no relief from abdominal cramping!

Hurts when I bend over or randomly. Started every 15-20 minutes now is every 30-60 minutes.

If I have to take a crap I'd rather just do it now. I know if I go to the hospital I'll just have gas or something ridiculous.

30 weeks pregnant.

Sorry for the lame posts- it's all that is on my mind. Here's another cramp- they hurt like hell and last less than a minute- I don't think it's contractions? Braxton Hicks from what I read aren't supposed to hurt.

  • Cafemom hasn't been letting me post today-

    I cramped all night last night and today it seems to have subsided a little- still hurts sometimes when I bend over. I am remembering eating a lot of brussel sprouts the night before with dinner. Makes me suspect gas.

  • Sounds like your gallbladder. Call your OBGYN. Gallstones can be seen on a simpe ultrasound. I had the same pains & I ended up waiting until after the baby was born & then had it removed. I suffered with the pain on & off until then. GL!

  • Please call the doctor, especially if it hurts doing one specific movement.

  • since its from the middle and radiating to the sides it sounds like bh or possibly labor pains. women have different pains..mine went from my back to the front but its different for everyone. i would get checked to be safe.

  • Yeah they aren't getting closer and it's positional- i can trigger them by bending over. I feel nauseated. But I don't feel like being in the hospital all night.

  • When I had DS I had been in the hospital numerous times with Braxton Hicks and when he finally decided to come I was sure it was gas pains and I was NOT going so the nurses could laugh at me again. Since they are not getting closer I have to wonder if you aren't actually having stomach pains. But I don't know DH's tip off was when he woke up and I was counting through the "gas pains" LOL
    If it doesn't let up soon I would go and get checked and hon you are not bothering me with these posts.
