First off-I have never ever had pre-term labor. In fact, all my babies have been born past their due dates. I just can't shake this feeling that something is going to happen and I am going to be stuck on bed-rest or in the hospital for the remainder of my pregnancy. I live 3 hrs away from any family, and dh certainly does not have enough time at work to take 4 months off. What would I do???? It seriously has been freaking me out so badly. What would I do with the kids? This fear is coming from all the Braxton Hicks I have been having that are sometimes crampy and painful feeling, and come in waves sometimes and I'll get them regular for an hour before they go away. I am just scared that they are something more and are changing my cervix. Is it silly? Do you think they are OK and just because my body has done this 5 times before? I have an ultrasound tomorrow so I will be making sure to have her check my cervix during the scan, and I'll be mentioning it to the midwife, but I am just really freaked out right now about them.
Anyone else having BH that are like this already?

Devon (16), Trevor (11), Bobby (10), Ryan (8), Breanna (7) , Oliver born 1-11-11 turning TWO! And thinking about #7...NTNP!
I had them this early and this often with ds and got put on bedrest. With both DDs and ds #2 I had them this early and frequently but they never changed my cervix so I only had a few days here and there on bedrest and reduced activity. However this time I have only had a handful of them which is so weird for me.
I am glad you have an appt tomorrow and can mention it!!! My ob always said that the only way to know if it's a BH or real contraction is to get checked. I have had a bedrest feeling with this pregnancy too but have no reason to think that. I think it stems from me being so busy with my other kids and being afraid of what bedrest would do to our family.
