So last night I got up about 3 AM to go pee and when I was walking around I thought "oh, wow that's weird... feels like I am having a contraction." So I peed and went back to bed. As I was lying in bed they kept clearly coming and going so I grabbed my phone and downloaded a contraction app and started timing them. They were so random in how they were coming some were 7 minutes apart and some were a little over 4 minutes a part. The last time I looked at the clock it was close to 4 AM and they were still coming... I eventually fell asleep but when I woke up this morning I have just felt strange, like not really present and have been having some restless leg syndrome off and on along with my hips are really achy which is a little weird for me since I have been seeing a chiropractor every other day and had been feeling so much better in that department. Also the last couple of days I have just had weird twinges of pain down way low when I walk like her head is just sitting there.
I should mention that I am 34 weeks and 4 days but I had that ultrasound on Monday were the tech said she was measuring 36 weeks and a couple days. uggggg.... with my first one he was 9 days late and I had to be induced so I don't really know what the real deal looks like.
Sounds like BH. The RLS is horrid then add the hip pain...uuuggg..I been feeling the leg and hip and back pain for awhile and its really wearing.
Keep hydrated and I would keep track of the contractions. Although its totally normal to have them as your body is preparing, if they become regular I would call your doc just to let them know.
I agree. What's funny though is that my RLS is actually less pronounced than before the second trimester. I have had RLS since I was about 12, and had pretty bad bouts of it first trimester, but since then they've really calmed down. But I am getting the hip and pelvic pain.
"Shake it up now, Sugaree. I'll meet you at the Jubilee. And if that Jubilee don't come. Maybe I'll meet you on the run."
I've noticed hip discomfort if I've been on one side for too long. It is almost more like muscle cramping. I get the low pains/twinges as well. I don't know if any of it means anything at all. Kind of annoying isn't it
