I feel really off today. This morning, I was having contractions lasting 1-3 minutes each (couldn't tell if they were one long contraction or a layering of several smaller contractions), anywhere from 3-7 minutes apart for about an hour. I was pretty convinced it wasn't real labor though, because every time I got off my feet, they slowed down. Still having contractions, and it seriously feels like I have a bowling ball between my legs. I've also been having some sharp pains in my right side around hipbone level. It woke me up out of a deep sleep last night, and has been bothering me on and off through the day. I had some back spasms this morning too. So, overall, pretty miserable, but still not feeling convinced enough that this is anything other than pre-term "gearing up" to call the OB. I'm going to try to work for 1.5 hrs tonight, and would really like to teach my students Wednesday night... we can use the extra income. After that, whenever this baby wants to arrive is fine with me!!!
Yikes be careful Mamma and watch your blood pressure. My Dr. said a general feeling of yuckiness can be a sign of Pre-E along with the right side pain (though they said that would be upper right side abdomen) Hope you feel better!
My next OB appt. is Wednesday, so that will be very telling since they will be doing my 1st cervical check, re-checking for protein in my urine, and taking my BP. I think I will have a much better idea of whether or not I'm going to make it to my planned c/s date on the 23rd after going to that appt!
