Braxton Hicks at 14wks???

Posted by on Apr. 25, 2012 at 9:48 AM

I am 14wks now and have been pretty stressed due to some personal issues. I have posted in this group before and if you have folled them you know I am high risk and have had issues. Right now I am debating calling my doctor again. (I really hate having to call) I am getting an uncomfortable cramping that sort of feels like menstral cramps? I am not sure if it is normal and am hoping it is. Any Ideas?

they can come on earlier with each pregnancy.
but you shouldn't have more than a few in an hour. if they become frequent enough to "time" them, I'd call.

Have you been drinking plenty of water? When I was cramping like that (AndI was bleeding during my first trimester into second) and I work 9 1/2 hour days in a busy office. I wasn't keeping up with my fluids, starting cramping and it wouldn't go away. After the 2ndday of cramping I went to the ER. The Dr did an ultrasound and cervical check. Baby fine, but she said I was dehydrated and really need to focus on drinking more water/fluids. I didn't realize what I was doing to myself by not drinking enough water. I wish you the best of luck sweety. I lost my first in June last year, and this one has stayed with me with onlyl 4 weeks to go till due date. :)

Just for peace of mind, call your doctor. But, start drinking those fluids because they are more important than we realize. :)
