When I went to L&D I was having contractions but I wasn't dilated any. My OB said they were most likely related to the kidney stone.

But man they are driving me crazy. I've noticed that I have a lot more of them if I'm up on my feet longer than 15 minutes. I still have 10-12 weeks to go and I'm feeling really limited physically I know I shouldn't complain but my kids keep me super busy and it's hard to just sit down and watch everything instead of helping you know?

I know what you mean. I've been getting contractions a lot.. especially if I'm up and about. I have to really limit myself. I had preterm labor with DS and was on bedrest at 33 weeks. I'm really trying to lay low this time so that doesn't happen again but it's hard! Especially chasing a 2 yr around.
I would just time them and if they come often and don't go away with rest and water then get checked again.

I 'm so sorry. I know what you mean about having kids keeping you busy. Brighton is 2 and is all over the place. I haven't had any contractions yet so I can't relate that part with you but i do feel for you.

That would be hard! Hopefully you can get them to calm down a little somehow so you get some relief. Rest when you can (which I also know isn't often!) and keep that baby in there!
