Can BH contractions actually hurt to the point of making you cry?

So I was at work a couple days ago (I have a stressful job) and was carrying some dishes, when all of a asudden I got this sharp pain (felt like a muscle cramp or someone hitting me) in my right side. It was so bad it actually made me drop the dishes and brought me to tears. All I could do was sit hunched over and try to regulate my breathing. When I tried to stand up the pain had spread to my whole lower tummy. It felt like stabbing, shooting, tight pain. It took about half hour to go away.

  • Typically BH will not last for 30 minutes. Are you drinking plenty of water? Dehydration can give stabbing pain anywhere in our body. What week of pregnancy are you in?

  • I had BH like that for almost half of my pregnancy. But it is unusual, so it warrants a chat with your doctor if it keeps happening. Could be that your little one kicked you hard and essentially gave you a charlie horse. Like the first reply said, make sure you are plenty hydrated.
