I am 39 weeks preggo, had my membranes stripped on Monday and as of yesterday am 4cm dilated. My bag has not ruptured or anything. My husband and I decided to have sex last night and while it was a little uncomfortable it felt good. Sorry warned you TMI lol. anywho last night I woke up at 3am with unbearable pain in my left side that came and went in waves. I thought maybe my kidney was irritated or could have possibly got a UTI (even though I had my urine tested yesterday) the pain in my left side has stopped but now I have had contractions all day. they are 3 minutes apart, last about 40 seconds, and are staying at the same pain level. are these just braxton hicks? my back is also killing me. IDK if I have an infections, i dont have a fever, chills and no trouble urinating. what do you mommas think? I know some of you will say call OB or go to the hospital but I was just there yesterday and they sent me home.

  • Sounds like the early stages of labor to me. Have you tried having sex again? Maybe that can get the contractions stronger.

  • my actual doc is out of town until Monday. I've been talking to his midwife all week but shes not very much help. She won't do anything unless he gives the ok which is not gonna happen obviously. I dont wanna rush to the hospital to be sent home yah know.
