I get the crampy feeling and lots more BH than I did with Lily. I think the BHs are even a little more painful this pregnancy. Last time they were just a tight sensation, and now they have this weird tingly/crampy/tight feeling that comes on like a wave. It's hard to describe. My midwife said to expect them more often as I get further along. Boo.
BH for me meant my belly got hard as a rock, really tight, but it wasn't painful. I felt it most in the front and top of my belly. Contractions we more lower, back and side radiating cramping like pain.
I did have a very scary episode of knock you on your butt pain that came every 2 mins and went away after about 10 mins that I almost went to the hospital for - I had been out walking too much and not taking in enough fluids. That was around 20 weeks.
I'm getting nervous, probably for no reason. It feels almost like af cramps with back pain. It's hard to tell a definite start and stop with them, but I know I've had 4-5 in the past 30 minutes. If they were real, then they'd be a lot more painful that close together right?
If I can't make them stop before too long I may just call to see what the dr says.
That sort of sounds like what I had Saturday night and last night. I ended up with contractions for 8-ish hours Sat. and never called or went in. Last night it only lasted about an hour so I didn't call then either. It's all so tricky! When I had the feelings I did Sat. with Kaija I called, went in and came home with a baby!
It's easing up now. I've been drinking a ton and laying around with a heating pad (poor Haley... it's beautiful outside...). I still feel crampy but haven't had anything intense in 30 minutes or so. Now I want to have the hospital bag packed and the carseat installed! That was scary.
I have had this too ALyssa. They are painful BH that feel similar to both contractions and crampy feeling. I get them often! I just talked to my jazzercise lady today and she said that with her pregnancies, after she did jazzercise she would have small contractions afterwards if she hadn't drank enough water. I am going to talk to my midwife tomorrow about it at our first appt. I will let you know what she says! Glad you are both feeling better!
