So the last couple of days I've noticed in the evenings that I'm kind of crampy. It usually doesn't last long, and it's not really painful, just uncomfortable. But of course it makes me kind of worried. *sigh* I'm trying my best to be better at keeping myself hydrated...


I've also been having migraines and I think they're starting as sinus headaches. Any ideas of something I can do to help with that? I've been afraid to really take anything. My doctor told me that sudafed should be okay, but not only has what I've been reading about it make me not want to take it, it's not relieving the sinus pain/congestion. My nose isn't congested, just my sinuses are, and I'm starting to worry about it becoming a sinus infection.


*sigh* I'm going to have to call my Dr. aren't I?

Well, my dr said you can take any of the Tylenol sinus/cold meds. Maybe they will help. Please KUP. I hope you feel better soon.

I have a lot of sinus problems and because of that I get a lot of headaches, but I havem't been taking anything for it. I just started taking allergy medicine on monday, that seems to help with my sinuses. Have you tried taking allergy medicine?

Yeah, I've tried claritin, zyrtec and benedryl and none of them really helped.

Yes my doc also said the tylenol cold meds were fine, Hope your feeling better soon honey!

Maybe BH contractions start early like everything else does in second and third pregnancys? Just a thought~

Yes. BH start earlier with each pg. I got them as early as 12 weeks with one of my pg. Water, water, water is about all they can say however call cause they may be real and not BHs.

They always stop when I move position or any of the various other things they tell you to do, so I'm pretty sure they're just BH. But they're so different than my BH with Cora and Erin.

I *do* need to drink more. I'm working on that.


Thanks ladies!

I hope you get to feeling better!! You're calling your doctor with these questions aren't you? KUP! Especially about the cramps. I finally called my doctor as I had been having a lot of cramps too (not bh contractions, more period-like cramps), and they had me come in so that they could check to make sure everything was fine. It was, and they said stay hydrated; and let them know if the sensation changed to an actual contraction feeling. I hope it's nothing serious, Brittanie!!
