Does anybody else feel more things happening during the night? I mainly noticed a few days ago things being more intense. My hips hurt more (have to change sides a lot but still hurts) and the last two nights I felt something going on....kind of like cramps. Maybe it's getting ready for the baby. I think I remember something like this happening a week before my son last time. Nothing is unbearable or super painful, but enough to wake me up and not comfortable. I was just wondering if anyone else is feeling this or has before in the past before a baby came and also why it seems to happen at night more than during the day.
Yes! It's started the last few days. I've been woken up at night due to menstrual like cramping with the BH - not nearly as bad as a real contraction but very uncomfortable. Now this evening I had one and it had the additional benefit of downward pelvic pressure.
I think this happened last time during the 2 weeks before my water broke. I should have taken notes, LOL, I can't remember exactly.
For the last week or so I've been getting at least one seriously painful contraction, only at night. That's been pretty awesome can't say my hips, back & ribs are any worse than they have been at night though
I'm glad it sounds normal. Sorry others are going through it too, but I guess it means our babies are getting closer. It may remain a mystery about why it happens during the night more. I've heard that lots of people go into labor more at night too....maybe being more relaxed?
