Contraction question

At the end did you ever have many random contractions in a row? I've had 8. They were a few MIN apart to 15 and they ranged from 30 seconds to almost two min
This is so frustrating!

Oh and it seems like every time I get up my whole entire stomach tightens up

Go drink a big glass of water. That happened to me and it turned out I was dehydrated.

Laydown on your left side or take a warm bath. See if that stops them.

Had BH randomly throughout my pregnancies. They were closer together, consistent and stronger when I was actually in labor. How far along are you?

I never experienced contractions on my own. It was always after they started the induction process in the hospital with pitocin. But your contractions sound promising..i would continue to drink water, lie on left side and relax. If they still continue on a regular basis, call labor and delivery.

Yea I did..it sucks because you're like come let this be the real thing then bam they come fewer and further between. Just take a warm bath or shower and lay on your left side to see if they stop. If they don't it may be baby time soon. Good luck.
