im 34 weeks and ill be 35 on monday and i have been having pre term contractions since twenty sum weeks but they always went away after goin to the ER and they gave me a shot to stop them...my baby has dropped alot and its alot of pressure down there and its really sore...thursday night i started havin pains in my back, pelvis and sides and then they proceded to my stomach i was havin braxton hicks contractions while this was goin on or at least i think they were braxton hicks it could be the real ones since they were accompanied by back n side pains.... i tried tylenol, and a hot bath and a heating pad but the pain stil persisted for hours after, i eventually fell asleep and when i woke i was still havin pelvic pain but the rest went away. then again today around 11 am the pain started back and it increased in the same spots and lasted for hours, seemed like forever but now i feel a little better but the pelvic pain is still here....is this false labor or real labor and the only reason i havent been to the ER is because im so worn out of all those trips jus for them to keep doin the same thing, im miserable and ready to get it over with....any suggestion????
I think the full moon is making our babies mess with us! I've been experiencing similar aches and pains. I've never been to the ER though. I've been having braxton hicks practically my whole pregnancy but they just got more frequent and intense. Ever since I woke up this morning I've had pelvic pain/pressure (feeling like a sore muscle or menstrual cramps) that I've never had before and back pain (but that's not unusual.)
I don't have any suggestions, but I'll be asking my doctor on tuesday. It sounds like you've already tried anything I've heard of such as heating pad and bath.
I'm in the same boat as you, let me know if you come up with any ideas!
i have an appt tuesday also, i know when i tell my doctor what happens he gonna fuss because i didnt *** in soon as it started but he will be ok, hes tryna make me miserable, he see this baby is determined to get here
