Anyone having contractions?!

Since last night, if I'm on my feet at all, they're every 10-15min, shooting pain in the lady parts & thighs and a terrible back ache.
If I lay on the couch, they taper off but I still feel the tightness in my tummy & back. I am about to give in to a 39 week induction. That's what I've done for the other 3 kids, and if this keeps up all weekend, I'm going to be so cranky by my 39 week checkup on Tuesday. I don't want to give in but at the same time I really really do!

Re: Anyone having contractions?!

I thought I was having some last night and started flipping out (because with previa, going into labor would be very bad!!!) but I think I was just having some BH I could actually feel. Been fine since then. Wheew! No labor here, thank you! I need to last 4 more days!!

I would've been scared too! I'm so glad you are almost to your c-section date!
I feel like my body is messing with me, and it's making this hormonal mama crazy!

Re: Anyone having contractions?!

That's the way the last 2 weeks of my pregnancies tend to go. Except nothing has started yet! Does getting on all 4s and rocking help with the back pain at all? It helps me with the pressed nerve butt spasms I've been having lately.

Unhappy Re: Anyone having contractions?!

I am having very very strong but random BH. They have been waking me up at night the past week now. I'm exactly 38 weeks today.

I'm almost 36 weeks. I started having contractions 2 weeks ago. Every day. I have at least 2 hours a day where I have at least 5 or 6 in an hour. Mostly bh but some of them are uncomfortable. I did this with m,y oldest dd, who surprised even the dr. And was........ 3 days OVERDUE :jaw drop:
I'm sure my dr. Will want to induce at 39 weeks too. That's just the norm these days. I will be surprised if I'm not dilated already. And I had last baby in 2 hours. Once I hit 4 cm, it's less than an hour from there. I'm a little worried about going into labor on my own just for that reason.

You don't have much longer. Hang in there, mama!

This is me to a T. Once I get to 4, watch out. The nurses had to catch our last baby!
I won't worry so much if I am induced because then I know Someone will be with the kids & we won't have to speed to the hospital.

Re: Anyone having contractions?!

And here I can walk around at 4cm for weeks. Only 2 right now though. This kid has no intention of coming before her EDD. Which I'm ok with, but I'd like to feel like I'm making more progress. I'm walking as much as I can. Wondering if I should hop up and squat or something every time I notice a BH to make them more effective. I don't mind them as long as they are doing something!
