Re: Gah! Seriously?

I hate to tell you this, but I went through what you are going through for a month with my previous pregnancy. I have an irritable uterus that gets more and more mad as I get farther along. My contractions are very frequent by 28wks and constant and painful by 32 or so. (this is the trend for my past 2 pregnancies and I'm 30wks along with the same trend this time too.) With my previous pregnancy, I went into real labor at 32wks, because of a stomach virus. I was dilated to 3 when I got to the hospital. They got it stopped and sent me home 24hrs later. Of course, I never actually stopped contracting. I was contracting, strongly, every 10 minutes for the next 4wks. I was at 4cms at 33wk and 5 at 34wks. I was put on hospital bedrest for a week. The nurses couldn't believe I wasn't actually in labor. I stayed at 5 for another 2 wks and delivered at 36wks. I was pregnant with twins. So, 36wks is normal.

But, my point is I understand how you feel and how frustrating this is and the feeling of wondering how long this can go on and dreading it too. I'm 30wks now and contracting like crazy. It's uncomfortable and quickly approaching painful. I'm dreading the last 8-10 wks of this pregnancy and at the same time praying it lasts that long. *sigh*

to you!!
