I have pains but not quite I don't know how to explain it. I think it can be my contractions mixed in with these to make it worse, but I'm just not sure. I take Tylenol it doesn't help. I try to walk it out or sit down and it just gets worse. Last night I had the boys all to bed and I laid down and I just cried myself to sleep from the pains I was enduring. I was wondering if I'm the only crazy one here with these.
I have had some pains too but on my back and they feel just like bad menstrual cramps . Have you tried calling your doc or maybe going to the er , The pain sounds really bad. Just take it easy for now.
Can i ask you something personal?
Since your other baby has your doctor talked to you about trying to prevent you from going into labor?? I have only ever heard bits n peices of your story.
They never gave me a game plan to stop or prevent labor. They actually won't stop it until after 20 weeks, I believe, I will not be administrator any drug (ie mag drops, injectables to stop labor) they will not even touch me. I can't go to L&D until 16 weeks where they will monitor me. But at 16 weeks I will start shots or suppositories to see if it will reduce the contractions, which in my case they don't think it will work, but it won't hurt to try, right? And they will start monitoring my cervix. But until I'm 20 weeks or beyond they say "it is in God's hands" which I can't help at this point just gotta get past these next 9 weeks until they will be able to do something if anything. But at 24 weeks they are thinking about hospitalizing me, thank goodness the hospital has internet and I have a laptop!
But I just drank 3 16 oz cups of water and we are going to bed in 30 minutes (thank goodness for bed time) and tomorrow other than going out to get envelopes for my orders I will be off my feet.
Yeah thats what I dont understand are they chalking it up as that you are dialating or contracting early? `
To put it bluntly they have no clue why my body does this. They are doing all of these blood test that they know are going to come back negative, but still doing it. They say I contract early because they can see them on the monitor. And dialating a little but I still have time for that I don't start that until 20 weeks, they just say my cervix can't handle the weight of the baby so it softens, shortens and funnels early starting at 15 weeks.
And they won't put in a clercage because I am having obvious contractions and something about them only doing it for people with cervix imcompetetance without contractions.
I don't understand, I think they should sew me up but they say because my water breaks whenever it wants to it could cause a serious infection if it breaks and the clercage is still in.
I had some pains yesterday that felt like period like cramps but I chalked it up as ligament stretching which is the main cause of any abdominal pains at this stange...at least in my case. I have to drink a ton of water as well and it subsides. This is goign to sound weird but I also make sure my hands are warm and stick them RIGHT on where my uterus is and it seems to relax it enough that it doesn't hurt as much.
I've almost cried a few times because it does hurt and is scary.
