Irritable contractions. I have had some here and there, but not the rhythmic regular ones. They are different then Braxton Hicks. They hurt, can cause dilation, and are much more frequent then BRaxton hicks. With all my other pregnancies, they start getting regularly around 32-33 weeks. Well, we are at that point. Today since about 6, they have been about 3-5 min apart. So far, its not doing anything to my cervix. My first three pregnancies they put me on terbutaline thinking it was preterm labor. Last two we did not, and I didnt' deliver till 39 weeks (delivered 39 weeks with all of them)... its just a pain. They hurt, and they catch my breath, and I have to stop moving because I can't walk through them... So.. it starts, me doing things in tiny bursts before that next 30 second contraction stops me in my tracks. Its just annoying and draining more then anything. And I'm sure it means that at my appt tomorrow that they will be checking my cervix.. Little miss doesn't help this process being in an odd position and kicking through each contraction.
anyone else dealing with an irritable uterus/irritable contractions? Any tips to calm things down. I havent' really been able to find anything that works in my last pregnancies.
