Ok. My night last night ended extremely stressfully thanks to dh and sd8.
The day today wasn't much better as I got a call from my sister while I was at work to tell me sd8 continued throwing fits even while I was gone.

Basically I then had a blow up with dh about sd8 and had to call bm and let her know I needed her to deal with sd8 or come get her.
I cant handle the stress she puts on me anymore.

After all this stress kicked in, I've noticed the baby balling up or I guess it's my uterus tightening?
I've just now noticed this happening a lot all day as my stress level goes up.
It stops once I'm not as upset.
But I feel generally uncomfortable in my abdominal area.

Is this normal and does it sound like Braxton hicks?

I've had kids before but it's been about 6 years. And I had problematic pg's so nothing about the others were normal and I don't know what to compare this pg to.

It sounds like it could be braxton hicks....but I'll be honest I have NO experience with them. GL and if it keeps happening I would call your drs office and ask their opinion.

Yeah, sounds like BH. Staying hydrated can help ward them off, but if they get very frequent or uncomfortable you should probably give your OB a call.

Sorry you had such a stressful day!

I just posted about cramping. I had irritable uterus with DS and started getting contractions at 16 weeks with him, well, today I just started noticing that all too familar cramping and tightening in the uterus. Mine feels so tight and heavy and full today I would call your doc just to check in. I have not, just bc I basically had to deal with this my entire last pregnancy. Im not going to lie.....it sucks!!!
