Tonight after Neils got home we headed to town to get some stuff done, and on the way down I started contracting every few minutes I drank alot of water and just tried to relax. They went away after a while, but I had around 10 contractions in that hour.

We went to neils school and I was fine, no contractions so thought "whew its over" then we went to eat and they started again 5 minutes apart.

They went away again, but I keep getting dizzy spells, not sure why, baby could be sitting on something.

anyway, this is how it started with ethan at 26 wks and kaiden at 22wks, and now im dissapointed that it looks like its heading my way again

I am going to call my dr. tomorrow and let him know what happened, i do NOT want to because im afraid what he will tell me, but I know as a mommy I need to. I would feel like ###### if I didnt call and something happened.

Tomorrow I am going to take it super easy, and neils is home all day, and hope and pray they do not return. I want this baby perfectly healthy, but I also do NOT want bedrest this time.

if you could all please send me lots of NO PTL vibes, NO bedrest vibes, and LOTS of healthy baby vibes I would really appreciate it!!!!

My panic buddy.....Im so sorry! This is so scary! Not again.....at least not yet.........

Go in and be seen-you already know-hopefully they tell you that it's just BH, but NOT effacing or dilating your cervix...

Saying prayers for you that your little guy is staying put, no action in the cervix department, and no more close together contractions!

REST, REST, REST BEFORE it's mandatory....if you can escape that-that would be great.

It's been one thing after another with Kaiden and now this....You need to be cut a little break here!

Let us know what the doc says (assuming you are going in, RIGHT????)

HUGS!
Stacey

thanks so much guys!! I pray it was just tonight and does not come back

They have been stopped for 2 hrs now so Iam not going in, but am calling my dr. in the morning to let him know, and pray they dont return in the evening.

with my son Ethan they came in the evening, went away. next day did the same thing. 3rd day did the same thing, went in and was already 1cm and my water was leaking. so I am hoping its not like that this time.

thanks so much guys, you are the best. we made it overnight without contractions!

my head feels weird though.

and no they didnt start me on progesterone shots, never have, with kaiden my dr. started me on procardia, which stops contractions, and strict bedrest. with my son ethan it was the first time and I was hospitalized because I didnt catch it soon enough.

My dr. opens in a little over an hour, I will let you guys know what he says, i pray no bedrest!!!
