Ugggg the Braxton hicks I've been having lately are KILLING ME....

I had the same with DS, crazy, intense regular contractions for like 2 weeks before he was born..it totally sucked. In fact, I was told 10 days before he was born that I was likely in early labour and would probably deliver in a day or two...10 days of contracting later..he was born.

Last night they were so painful, I didn't sleep so today I feel like crap. My stomach/uterine muscles actually hurt from the "workout" they got.

It wouldn't be so bad if I knew it was because I was actually in labour...but the worst is knowing that it could go one for days and days and days.

To make it worse, I am pretty sure this baby is upside down and the pain in my lower, lower back/butt area is AWFULLL. I have zero appetite and no energy

I just want to waiting to be over. My OB told me last week that I was likely going early, as in the next couple weeks. I just want to go into labour so the uncertainty is over and I know I don't have to deal with these nasty contractions everyday anymore.

Rant over!

Sorry your having sooo much pain ((hugs)). How many weeks are you for your Dr to say you'll probably go in the next couple of weeks?

I've been having the same. I'm 35 weeks 3 days.
I'm wondering how worried I need to be about the contractions? Would it be awful if I let them go too long and ended up too progressed to stop the labor? I want baby to be healthy but I'm getting tired of hurting

meee tooo!!!

So with DS, they told me to come in to L&D if my contractions ever got regular, even if they were only like 8-10 min apart if I was before 37 weeks. With that being said, If I followed that advice, I'd have been going in everyday to be checked for almost 2 weeks as every day they would build up to about 8 min apart...so I ignored the advice. When I went into real labour it was SO MUCH MORE PAINFUL then the BH.

For me, they are usually worse at night so my rule is if they don't go away during the night or get worse or closer then 8 min I will go in.

I think pay attention to trends, if you notice them coming frequently, start timing.

A baby at 35 weeks is usually very healthy. Occasionally, they have minor breathing difficulties BUT if you go into labour now, I don't think they would stop it. At least, that is what my dr. told me.

My doc doesn't usually stop after 34 weeks unless he catches it early enough. I think she will stay in for a couple of more weeks.

That's good to here. My Dr. thinks this baby is coming anytime...I m basically right on track from when DS was born in terms of "indications of impending labour"
