soooo i always get ahead of myself so now 34 weeks... and i am wondering about contractions!

i had to take a trip to the ER yesterday because i thought i was loosing my mucus plug... turns out i was having contractions and just dehydrated... i was dehydrated because that day i had a decent breakfast but then i felt really tired and sick so i slept ... pretty sure i was having contractions and or getting ready to birth... it's just alittle to early though guys.. and i dont feel contractions. apparently? i dont know. the nurse asked me if i felt anything but i had to say no.. i mean i felt the baby scrapping again my belly while i lay there with two monitors on my belly.. but other then that... nothing too serious.. just a very happy moving baby. anyone else Not feel the light stuff? And anyone else ever get really tired the day of giving birth.. without knowing why? Like resting up for the big event.

  • Dehydration will do that. And pregnancy. Are you anemic, any complications, healthy? Taking your prenatals?
    Lots of women have this around that gestation. It's usually just the body getting irked that Mommy isn't doing her job to pay better attention to take better care....

    Good luck~ take care!!
