I had contractions last night-totally freaked out!

I'm only 34 going on 35 weeks along, and last night I was having tons of contractions throughout the evening. I never timed any of them, silly me. I laid on my left side for awhile and they went away. But then as soon as I'd get up, they'd start again. I was so scared! I kept thinking-I'm not ready yet! Were these just BH contractions, or the real thing? I didn't think BHs kept going--I thought they were just random throughout the day. These definitely weren't random.

I had some strong BH late in my pregnancy, and I timed them...8 minutes a part...but, not real- they went away. I ended up having to be induced.

I would say, if it happens again, call into the doctor, and have them "check" you or do a stress test etc.

Better safe than sorry

Anytime you have a period of regular contractions, you should call. It could be nothing, but IMO it's better to be safe than sorry!

Tell Jonas to stay put! I haven't mailed his longies yet!!! (working on Joss's tonight)

Give the Dr a call tomorrow. (Are you still not seeing Locher?) Maybe it's something in the water at Wittlich, *lol* or else Jonas is just trying to one-up Kaitlyn!
