Yeah, so I'm just going to go ahead and complain for a few minutes and then go on about my day.
Yesterday from about 2:30 until 8:00 PM, I was having irregular uncomfortable contractions. They'd start, go for awhile, and then stop for an hour or so... and then start up again. By 8:00, I was having contractions that really hurt. They mainly hurt in my back and the bottom part of my belly... and were coming every 3-4 minutes... until about 11:00 PM. Couldn't talk through them and somehow accidentally smacked SO because he was touching me... swear I didn't mean to smack him. Then they started to go away slowly, decreasing in intensity and I eventually fell asleep.
I'm getting so frustrated with the start/stop stuff. If I went to L&D every single time the contractions were 2-3 minutes apart for an hour (like the doctor said), I would have already been there and sent home many times.
This morning, I feel tired and nauseous... I can't wait until this is over. I don't even know how things are going to go when it's the "real deal" because now I'm so not into running to L&D (an hour away) just because I'm having contractions. Been there and sent home twice. I'd like for the next time I go to be returning home a couple days later with a baby.
Anyway, that's enough. Now I'm going to go TRY to stand long enough to take a freaking shower without feeling like passing out.. mehh.
I'll jump on the complaining bandwagon right along with you. I've been having the same contractions as you, they'll get super intense and then fade off...
And now, everyone is saying literally every time they see me "just hurry up and get it over with" or "when are you going to hurry up and have that baby?" Ugh seriously I would if I could and I can't make it happen.
After being in pain all day that is the LAST thing you want to hear repeatedly.
My BH were just as painful as contractions. So when I went into true labor, I didn't know if I was or not.. And my contractions were 2-3 mins apart right away. But after 3 hours of contractions 2-3 mins apart I knew I was in labor plus I had diarrhea.
The BH sucked ass so I feel your pain. Hopefully you go into true labor soon!!
