I would say, give a call to your doctor right away.

I was told that if I have more than 4 braxton hicks contractions in an hour it is too many and I should call...have you been drinking enough water? Good luck and keep us updated. I think I would go ahead and call!

Question about contractions

Postby onfaith » Mon Feb 01, 2010 09:00 pm

Since 5:15 tonight, I've been having regular contractions. They come anywhere between 11 and 15 minutes and last about one minute each. They are not painful at all, just terribly "tight" - like a normal Braxton hicks. I do get up and move, but they don't subside. I've been a little nauseous over the past few days and felt earlier today like I was suffering from menstrual cramps....not to mention my BMs (TMI - I know) - were not "normal" today.

I've never encountered "normal" labor and first was induced and that was 12 years ago (can't remember) and my second was an emergent cesarean. Any thoughts - I'm not thinking this is true labor, but don't want to over look it. Thoughts? I am only 33.5 weeks with PIH and am on Labetalol and Procardia.
