I posted yesterday about the cramping, and that all too familar hard uterus is officially here at 13 weeks 5 days!!! uggggghhhhhh

I have irritable uterus, and it just sucks, plain and simple, it is horrible! I prayed that I wouldnt get it with this pregnancy, but here I am now freaking out a bit, bc I just know what a long pregnancy it is going to be if it is already starting this time!

Who else has this? Just looking for some support, and someone to "complain" to
Guess I should call my high risk doctor today for my first cervical legnth check....YUK!!!!

I don't know if I do, but I do get Braxton Hicks already and at time the backache and cramping. How do you know if that's what you have? I went in like a week ago because of the cramping and doc said my cervix looked very thick and closed.

I had it during my third and fourth pregnancies, and figure I'll probably have it this time around as well. It can be really awful, like being in early labor for weeks on end.

It started for me around 30 weeks. I would have 5 or more contractions per hour for most of the day. Some of them were extremely painful and felt like real labor contractions. Many nights I couldn't sleep because I would be woken up by them thinking for sure I must be going into labor, but then they'd stop.

By 37 weeks or so I was dilated to 4 already. Oh, and I also started losing big pieces of my mucus plug once all the contractions started. I was induced both times, but I was so scared I'd end up having the baby at home by myself because I would never know when I was really in labor! And my labors go so fast, 2 hours from the time they hook up the pitocin to the time I deliver. My OB said last time that it's a good thing I was induced because I would have never made it to the hospital in time.

I bet you do. I forget, did you have it with Anabelle too? If you are already feeling BH this early, I say it is prob IU. I would ask your doc about cervical length checks via ultrasound. It made me feel so much better knowing that my cervical length was not changing (until 31 weeks) with Will. The contractions can be exhasting mentally and phyisically!

Isnt it just horrible! This is me, except I started getting them at 16 weeks, 5 or more an hour! By 34 weeks they were 3-5 min apart for hours! Same with me, every night from about 34 weeks on I would be in so much pain, and would say this has to be labor! When I was really in labor it didnt even feel that much different, I just had horrible back pain so went in! I dialated from a 4-10 in about 4 hours, so not super fast, but fast for a first baby. Im worried this time around too, that I will not go to the hospital in time

I had never heard of this but I hope you don't experience too much pain your whole pregnancy. That would have to be miserable. I have normal cramps still at this point but I'm sure that's just normal.

I did with my twin pregnancy starting around 24 weeks, but the pregnancy after them started at 16 weeks. I haven't noticed anything yet, but I'm kinda expecting it to happen again. Water and magnesium were huge helps and resting. Never did change my cervix either pregnancy, so it was just rather annoying.

Magnesium? Hmmm I had looked into this last pregnancy, buy my OB just brushed it off, so I never looked any further. How much/ how do you take it?
