So i just turned 14 weeks and i think im having real contractions. It starts in my.backgoes in my belly and it is so painful i can barely breathe happening almost every 5-8 minutes. I havent bled or anything but i think i lost a piece of my plug already. This is.my second pregnancy so im pretty faniliar with things. I also know theres nothing they can do this early my.question is, is this worth going to the E.R.? Its so.painful i cant even become.comfy in my.bed. i just want it.to stop but i dont know how ):

I would say so!!! I had bad contractions at 16 weeks and finding out i had no cervix left. Was but on hospital bed rest for 2 months. They would not do anything for the baby though till i hit 22 weeks and at 24 weeks baby is viable for NICU. Be careful. If you know something does not feel right go in right away!!!

First thing i would do though and the hospital will make you do this first too. Is drink an 8 oz glass of water and lay on your left side for 30 min to an hour. If they contractions subside then i think you will be fine and just need to rest. but if its still going on then i would go in.

Yeah i just drank that exactly.its been an hour and they have calmed but then it.starts up again not even ten minutes later and very painful. Ill probably.go in if i start bleeding. I just dont want to lose my baby i couldnt handle.that. ):

Yeah it could be just really nasty braxton hicks too. They can be painful even if they are not real.
