    My lovely day of contractions and trip to doctor

    Hey there all.
    I WANT SO BAD to have this baby!!!!!!!!!!!
    I woke up at 5am this morning with contractions. They got worse and worse and i finally broke down and called the doctor about noon. By this time they were painful and frequent. SO she told me to come in. I had a non stress test done. Baby seemed okay, but they were picking up my contractions. She checked my cervix and it had not changed but the contractions kept coming. Finally when they slowed down i was sent home to spend the weekend with my feet up and laying down as much as i can stand too. And told to DRINK DRINK DRINK. I was told i have a irritable uterus. I am still having contractions. They actually got worse after I got home. Now they have slowed and I thought I would get on here real quick. I have an appt again on Tuesday and hopefully things will have calmed down!! UGGGG, this pregnancy is crazy this time around! On top of it all my blood sugar has begun to rise to they upped my insulin. WOOHOOO! 30 more day,, 30 more days,, 30 more days,,,

    SO SORRY!

    Excellent news that your cervix has not changed. I hope some hydration and rest bring an end to the contractions and the discomfort.

    Hang in there...you are doing a super job keeping it all under control.

    Hi Missy

    I know exactly how you feel, I have been having these contractions for a week and a half now. I was told the same thing about the uterus and that there was not much to do but drink a lot and get as much rest as possible. I have not been diligent on the rest side, but have started to take it a little easier and I am constantly drinking (and peeing!!!) but they are getting better and less frequent.

    I hope your's slow down and hang in there - only 30 days left right!

    SO glad there were no cervix changes. You're so close now! Just make sure to get that rest (no cheating!) and lots of fluids, and things should be just fine. You're doing such a great job, and it's almost over!!
