I'm just miserable. I've been having Braxton hicks since last night, all through out today too. I have zero desire to eat, I don't want to do anything. I know they aren't the real thing but I just don't know how to function because I'm SO beyond uncomfortable. They aren't painful, just uncomfortable.. Really uncomfortable. I didn't even bother to call my doctor since I know "I'll just know" when they are real, but idk how to keep working with these(toddler teacher) BH so consistant like this.. Especially with all the women I work with who have kids and have dealt with this before.. I know its all normal, but ugh. I just want to cry all the time because I'm so overwhelmed being so uncomfortable.. I'm
Tempted to start my maternity leave NOW because I don't know how to survive another day.. I just don't want to leave my bed or my house. I'm getting so depressed.
Oh no. That is no good. I wouldnt know how to handle bhs and work either...if it gets too bad id definately take your leave early..because I'm sure the kids would be able to tell if you feel miserable. The start of my real contractions felt uncomfortable so I suggest calling the dr..maybe just to get some reassurance...you might also be dehydrated too.
are you drinking enough fluids? I was sick with some sort of stomach flu the last two days (throwing up, fever, etc) and the BHs were awful. I even timed them to see if I was being a baby but sure enough they were coming every 4 minutes. Today, I've been able to hold down liquids a lot better and they've subsided a lot. Maybe you need a bunch more to drink?
Hey girls. I'm ok! Just haven't gotten a chance to post again, sorry! So the BH stopped after 24 hours of them, and chugging water non stop all day. I've had a few here and there, but nothing like they were on Wednesday. All I keep feeling now is consistent stabbing pains in my va-j that actually cause me to gasp/yelp a little.
I keep having these pains on and off all day, driving me crazy! I know its normal but still.. I'm having some pressure too.. I know her head is down and ready to go, and I can feel her move her head, its so low and strange! I am SO ready to have her! 2 more weeks until 37 weeks! And I honestly don't think I'll make it until my due date.. Time will tell I guess! 5 weeks 1 day to go!!
