It's normal because of the increased blood flow during pregnancy.

Called the doctor and apparently it's because of the Nifedipine I'm taking to stop contractions.

OH BOY.. with the nifedipine... it's AWFUL. I'm always "red" and elderly women always tell me I have such rosey cheeks or I'm using too much rouge. I literally looked like someone spraypainted me with red paint when I had the nifedipine. It's AWFUL.. and your face is hot to the touch and you get a nasty headache. Try to lay low.. cool cloths on your head and if it makes you sleepy at all, I recommend trying to sleep after you take it.

UGH! I feel awful for you. Is it at least helping with the contractions? All of the things I listed are normal side effects of the medication.

Yeah, they range anywhere from an hour apart to 30 minutes apart. Doing much better. Still wondering if I will get off bed rest next week.
