  • are you dehydrated at all? you can supplement with a good calcium magnesium powder. you are getting closer. your uterus may be getting tired. make sure you are getting enough water, about 2 liters or more. good luck mama!!!

  • yes i am well hydrated I have been batteling these contractions since 16 weeks but they have become so bad even down to 5 min apart and my doctor has never told me anything about this calcium magnesium stuff.. why wouldn't she have told me something that would make things better?
