BH?or the real deal?

Well,I've been on my feetA LOT for the past two days,I went to my SO's concert yesterday and today went to a b-day party and the grocery store, etc.

well,now that i'm home my feet are so swollen you can't even tell i have ankles as well as my legs, andmy belly keepsgetting hard as a rock for about two minutes then loosens up but every now and then i'm feeling some pretty bad contractions, and i can't tell if these are actual contractions or BH?

i'm also feeling a lot of pressure,not in my va-hoo-ha area,just in my lower belly it feels super weird.

  • If the contractions are not regular like every 10 minutes or every 5 minutes the best thing you can do is get your feet up, carrying a baby puts extra strain on you so being up and around like you describe can wear your body down, lay down put a pillow or two under your feet to raise them above your heart and get some rest, the swelling in your ankles should go down a bit by morning ( i will warn you your probably going to make extra trips to the bathroom tonight)

    Found this website in my pregnancy group... time your contractions. If they're regular, it could be the real thing!
