Re: braxton hicks anyone?

had them all day yesterday when I took the kids to chuck e cheese. I think it was becasue I was chasing them around the place and it was just too much for me. It was really uncomforatable and even painful at times but when i got home and sat down for a bit it went away.

Re: braxton hicks anyone?

I've been having them too, and although I know logically that they are different than real contractions and that they are perfectly normal, it still worries me since DS was early. I've also been having these weird spasms..been trying to drink a ton of water, but it doesn't seem to help.

I feel your pain. EVERY day I am just praying to God that if I do go into PTL, that it doesn't happen for another week, minimum. Atleast that way, he would have a chance at living... ergh. I have things to do... and I can't put my entire life on hold (not do chores, not take care of kids, etc.) without some sort of proof that my cervix is changing. Last check (11 weeks ago) it wasn't... so I'm just hoping that it doesn't change. I'm 23 weeks today. I'm just SO uncomfortable, it's hard to think of what it will be like in 10-12 weeks. I have a hard time believing with how uncomfortable I am, that I am going to make it all the way to 39 weeks to be induced. It's so scary.

I don't think I had this with my first son but sometimes at work I feel like my
Belly gets tight / heavy. I am a nurse & walk around a lot. Maybe that is why! Usually lazy at home except chasing a toddler
