HI

I was wondering if anyone else is going through this, this is my third kid and since sunday i have been getting contractions. They werent to bad but as each day passes  on they have been getting MUCH worse to the point were some make me cry, they feel like REALLY bad charlie horses at the bottom of my stomach and they are making my whole stomach sore and bruised feeling. They are not regular I have timed them and sometimes I dont get them for a whole day just at night. But Im worried since they are so painful and increasing in pain and I still have a few months left, I didnt get these til the last month with my other two and they WERE never this bad!!
WHAT DO YOU THINK??? NORMAL OR SHOULD I CALL???

Hmm?? I'd say if you're in that much pain, give your Dr. a call! Have him/her check you out to see if you're dialating and trying to go into labor early.

Oh you poor thing! It never hurts to call that's why your office has on call docs.  If they get so bad you can't breathe, I'd go to the ER.

Could you be dehydrated?  When I was preg with my twins, it was very easy to get dehydrated and it caused me to have lots of contractions when I did get dehydrated.  You could also have a urinary tract infection...that causes contractions also.  I would definitely call your OB....better safe than sorry!  Get him to check your cervix.  Good luck!  I hope that baby stays in the oven a LONG while longer!

i went through the same thing at 24 weeks, and then again at 30 and again at 34!... YES call your doctor! im glad i did! i ended up in preterm labor each time ( not saying that you are) but if you let contractions continue, sooner or later you will start to dilate! play it safe! if you are uncomfortable don't hesitate to call your OB! even if it is nothing, atleast you will have the comfort of knowing that afterwards! good luck :)
