What should I do????

Ok so Im just over 37 weeks and I have been having BH for about a month now. All today I felt sick to my stomach and for the past hour or so Ive been having cramping along with stomach tightening and everytime it happens the baby stops moving. I started timing them and they are
12:11-12:14, 12:17-12:21, 12:25-12:26, 12:27-12:30. They arent completly regular and they dont hurt to the point where I cant move but its harder to breathe and walking isnt helping at all. Any advice?

  • personally i would call the hospital and get professional advice, cause it sounds like labor to me
    or you could try the laying on your side trick feet up and relax as if to relieve BH
    but i would call

  • I would call your doctor and ask them. They will tell you if they want you to go in or not! Good luck mama!

  • Same thing happened to me last year when I was pregnant with my son, it's your body's way of preparing you for having your little bundle. Unless the pain becomes completely unbareable or your water breaks.mucus plud/bloody show I would try to relax, deep breaths, keep you feet up and relax! ;)

  • The only thing the docs office will tell u is to go to labor and delivery...they will put u on a monitor...I was in L&D probably 6 times before I actually had my daughter....just to be on the safe side, that's what i would do...they don't care if u go in...

  • All they told me is to drink water and lay down. This whole nothing changing thing is driving me nuts lol. If I wasnt in so much pain I wouldnt mind waiting but I cant take this anymore. Hopefully things will go by faster.

  • I would suggest getting out of the house for a walk or anything really to get your mind off it. When it's time to go in, you'll know :) Good luck :)
