Well all day I had been cleaning and doing laundry. Well once I got to our room I started going through the huge boxes of baby clothes that my sil gave me and organizing them by size so I could start washing the little ones and getting them put away.... I kept getting this weird pain in the upper middle part of my belly and it would shoot right to my back, not lasting more than 30 seconds or so. Well when I was finished with that I carried a box out to the laundry room and started taking clothes out of the dryer and folding them and hanging them and the pain came back really intense where I had to go sit down. So there I was sitting on the couch and it happened again. So this time I looked at the clock and waited and then 7 min later it happened again, still not lasting longer than about 30 seconds and then 7 minutes later it happened again and then another 7 mins go by and it happens again so I start freaking out! So I figure if it happens again in 7 mins then I will call the ob and see what I should do. Well it didn't happen again in 7 minutes so I didn't call. But they have been coming off and on one every hour or two.
*When I had bh with bennie it was a lot different so I was freaking out that this was labor because I never had labor contractions with bennie either. SO in a way this is kinda like my first time. not knowing what to expect in the case that I go into labor before my section date.
So any way I am glad that I didn't have to go in... But woah... it really freaked me out!
That would've scared me, too! Sounds like you need to take more breaks. If that happens again, get a big glass of water and lay down on your left side. Drinking the water and resting that way should make them stop. If they go on for an hour, then it's time to call it in.
