Ok I am the one that asked about my belly getting hard, but I am timing them?

ok so for those that don't know I keep getting this my belly keeps getting completely hard all over except my belly button lol. That part is all flat while the rest is hard and my belly is so hard that it feels like my belly can't stretch anymore and my hips start hurting. So some are telling me it is probably BH well I am 31 weeks tomorrow. I go back to the dr thursday, but here is the schedule so far I wrote them down. first one was at 1014-1016pm. second one was at 1022-1024pm and the third was at 1035-1036pm it is 1040 rught now

  • I would call your OB. They seem somewhat consistant. It is better to be safe. They may recommend that you try the water and laying on your side first before coming in, but they may ask you to come into labor and delivery.

  • Are they painful? Try laying on your left side after drinking a couple of glasses of water to see if they subside. If they do not subside you may need to get checked out. They say if you have 4 or more contractions in an hour you need to get looked at. Good luck!!

  • no not really painful just uncomfertable and why I say that is cause it isn't hurting my belly it hurts in my hips, but not really a pain like uncomfertable. I just had another one at 1045-1047pm

  • Im 27 weeks and have BH contractions all the time. sometimes they are only a couple of minutes apart and will come and go for almost an hour. My doctor said I was fine but everyone is different.
