I was in pain to the point where we were in the Truck about to go to the hospital... it felt like a really bad Uti that made me have contractions... then it just stopped completely out of nowhere..... I'm so confused now

How far along are you? It could have been a gas bubble. Are you staying hydrated?

If it stays stopped I'd chalk it up to either a gas bubble or maybe a cramp that pulled your round ligament. Pregnancy makes your body react in weird ways to normal things! I hope it stays away. :)

Gas bubbles can happen anywhere! I've had them in my shoulder and upper back. It could also have been baby's position at the time. Maybe the head was sitting on a nerve, then he/she shifted. Regardless, if it stays away or comes and goes, I'd bring it up at your next appointment, but not freak. :)

Well, it comes and goes about every 30 mins... I feel fine then slowly the pain in my vagina returns and not long after, my tummy starts hardening. .. gonna try L&D if it hasn't stopped after dinner

Ok, with that description I know exactly what you're talking about! The hardening is Braxton-Hicks. Totally normal and 4/hr or less, regardless of pain or strength, is fine. Probably what's happening is that when the bh, a practice contraction, starts, it pushes your lo's head down onto a nerve or your cervix. This is part of the fun of pregnancy! As long as its causing no progression, i.e. change in your cervical length or dilation, its nothing to worry about. Go to spinningbabies.com and learn and do the forward-leaning inversions. Those should help. :)

 The contracting may be just a result of whatever is bothering you down there.  I started getting contractions because of really bad stomach indigestion.  Everything is interconnected it seems.

Many thanks!! I'm used to the bh, but lo's turned head down yesterday so I guess this is the result of that... hopefully she will reposition so I don't have to deal with it for the next 10 weeks!
