  • Been there done that. Nothin bad goin to happen. Your just doin way to much right now. In your workin then take it day by day buy when you get home fo lay down. Ask people to get what you need.

  • this happened to me. from 5 months until I had my son (which was on Wednesday) my doc put me on meds to stop contractions and I was told to stay off my feet as much as possible, and drink nothing but water.

  • It sounds like that you are overdoing it right now. My suggestion for the weekend would be to lay around and do nothing. Make sure you are drinking plenty of water. Then on Monday I would call your OB and ask to move your appointment up to next week because of what happened over the weekend. Good Luck Mama.
