this question is probably mostly for he irritale uterus ladies. I dont want to phone the hospital because they will just make me go in and DH andkids are sick. Dont want togo unless i realy have to.
I have an irretable uterus and have loads of painful BH since 10 weeks. I have had a few scary ones where my cervix have started softening shortening and dilatong this all by 27 weeks. 3 weeks everything seemed to have reversed, i amon adalat and loads of rest so perhaps it was that. The last 2 weeks has been bliss, with just normal BH, not very strong and notthat constant tight painful feeling in my uterus.
Now since Friday i have had realy stron ones. Friday evening the were regular, 4 min appart, 30sec in length even after taking 2 panadein extras. They did not get closer together or more intense so I did not go to hospital eventhough I was freaking out. Now since then I have been having realy strong Bh rather often, and it seems to push down my vagina while contracting in a rather stingy teary kiinda feeling. Thing is I cant remember what labour feels like, as I never had natural child birth it has only been stopped during pregnancy no 2 at 26 weeks.
I am of the opinion that if my contractions get stronger while regular or closer together that i should act or should. Just go to hospital if they are regular like Friday?
I will totaly understand if no one answers me, been such a pain in the backside.

I would probably call them (and I'm a freebirther), I think it's better to know its nothing then to stress about it being something

I have an irratable uterus and its very stressful not. knnowimg whether its actual labour or not, if you feel comfortable staying. home ands waiting to see what happens then do, I was told to come in if a) my waters broke or b) if the contractions got painful enough that I couldnt speak through them. I'm not sure about the pain your feeling down low though, unfortunately thus middwifes would more than likely tell You to go in and get checked out. sorry I'm not much help, let us know how it works out

I've been having the same and wondering the same.. I'm 29 weeks.
I'm trying to hold out until my doctors appointment on tuesday so fingers crossed I can have a scan then and they'll be able to tell me if anything is happening.
I was up at hospital every week getting checked with false alarms with last bub and had about a hundred internal exams, this time I'm asking for ultrasound checks of my uterus instead.
If you don't have an appointment in the next day or so i'd go in. I know it's a pain but they may even be able to do a fetal fibronectin test to let you know if you will be going into labour in the next couple of weeks or not.
Good luck x

Thank you guys. I had regular contractions a few weeks ago at 26 weeks and it turned out bein nothing...again. I will see how it goes and if they become regular again i will go in. I stay over 30 min away from hospital, which in it self does not make me nervours. Only problem is Iam pregnant with my 3 rd and heard CS or not labour would go faster than with the first 2, and my mom was in labour for 20 min from the first contraction to my brother being completely out.

when I couldn't talk through contractions with my first two, that was real labour, my first was born on his due date Ann's my. second four days over. I'm booked for a csection though on Thursday due the previous shoulder dystocia and my last bub was 8lb14oz and they think this bub will be bigger. if ever your in doubt though always call your hospital and go in for a check up, better safe then sorry I think
