alright i know pain and discomfort is normal for pregnancy. But i have been having pains off and on for a few days straight now. They started randomly like a month ago. Now I wake up during the night from the pain. My stomach gets rock hard. I see my dr tomorrow but they usually ignore me and brush me off...... I am 34 weeks is this normal?

Since it has been going on for days and not getting regular my guess is it's Braxton Hicks (sp?) contractions. BH contractions are just getting your uterus ready for the real deal. Also you may need to be drinking more water. If you become slightly dehydrated it can cause false contractions. As for your doctor MAKE him/her answer you. If they try to brush you off simply tell them that it is unacceptable behavior and that it is their JOB to answer any question and address EVERY concern that you have. Good luck.
