Alright ladies. Weird question...
Im 28.5 weeks with twins. YAY ME (never thought I would make it to viability stage with early problems) went in on Monday because I was having a lot of pain while sitting down. It was like menstural cramps happening 3-4 times in an hour. No specific timing in it at all. I would feel a ball like hardening about 3 inchs above my naval. It would cause some pain for a few then stop. Well I thought maybe im just tired on Sunday I had worked about 9 hours of OT the week before. Just an extra hour or so a day. (No I dont do anything stressful, love my job, its a desk job) So I went to sleep on sunday, slept through the night, which was odd because I get up twice to get recomfy. As soon as I got up on Monday the pains started again. So i called off work, which I hated and went to the dr. He said that the "balling" up im feeling is baby B balling up (he joked an said well call him ball for now) Told me that I should only start to worry if I feel 6 of the cramps in an hour for more then 2 hours. He also suggested some moderate bed rest because I needed more rest. I told him I couldnt afford to take off of work. He said then on days your off be in bed, no parks or walking with the two LO you have now. You have a high chance of becoming deheydrated. bleh bleh bleh... so i said okay an reluctantly have done as I was told.
Well now, a week later im feeling something completely different and I dont know if its normal, braxton hicks, or something I should be concerned about..
I feel a cramp that starts up top of my belly and goes to my lower. I can feel a tightening sensation but I cant tell if its movements or not. The pain is like menstrual cramps and I have a high tolerance for pain I guess idk. My back constantly hurts so that is no help on if its real or not. I should also mention the twins are showing to be about 2 weeks ahead of schedule in weight and growth.
Any insight? Its driving me nutso.
