Well, I've been cramping on and off since Sunday. I figured it was just growing pains, and have gone about my business. Yesterday, though, they were getting worse, and went on all afternoon. So I went home, and drank the 3 glasses of water that I've read they usually tell you to and laid down. Well, the cramps were worse laying down, and were really getting uncomfortable even after an hour and a half. So I decided to call this Perinatal Hotline that is on my Dr.'s business card. I figured it was like an Ask-A-Nurse type thing. Nope, it's his answering service. So I told them what was going on, and I had told them from the start that it wasn't an emergency and that I felt silly. The gal was like, you're 20 weeks, have been cramping for 3 days now and you don't think it's an emergency? So she called my Dr, who called me right back (I'm talking in less than 3 minutes). I apologized profusely for calling w/ something silly, but he wanted to see me first thing in the morning.

So in I go this morning. It was nothing, I was right. Don't know what's going on, but my cervix is fine, baby is fine; they are evidently not "active" cramps meaning that they're not doing anything. They are uncomfortable, but that's it. He told me to take Motrin (but I'm sticking w/ Tylenol), drink plenty of water, and not to be too active. He also said pelvic rest, which isn't a biggy I guess. My next appointment was in 2 weeks anyway, so he said we'll check you again then. If the cramps get worse, are accompanied by any spotting, then call them back. So that's the scoop.

Oh, the u/s tech was the really nice one this morning; and she checked the gender of baby again. It's still a Little Miss!!!!

YAY for the little miss

Sorry about the cramps, but it seems you have a great doctor, and that service that they have? That's so good, I wish my doctor had that. I'm glad that the cramps ar enothing to worry about, but take it easy. Are you still cramping? I hope the tylenol has help a bit.

Yup, Patty, still cramping. It's not painful, but it doesn't feel great. They are low, and like mild af cramps. At least they're not contractions, but it isn't very comfortable.

I'm sorry. Are you at work? Can you take time off at all? Did the Tylenol helped? I'm sorry you are having these pains.
