Ugh! Contractions!

I am so tired! Yesterday afternoon I had contractions every 15 minutes for a couple hours before I got them to stop. Today- all day- they've been coming every 20 minutes.  They are starting to slow down now after 7 hours.  I am so tired!

I'm starting to have them now more frequently too, but not all day like you. Do you have any appointments this week? I think mine are because I'm on my feet too much and then I start to contract. I had 3 in one hour yesterday, but after that first hour, only 2 the next and then it tapered off. Today, I've had them in the late afternoon after we were walking around at a fall festival and after walking my neighbor's dog. It might be time to stop my dog walking.

You poor thing. I hope they either give you a break, or turn into something.

Contractions tapered off finally. It was pretty frustrating, since I was off my feet most of the weekend. I was drinking tons of water, also, so making constant trips to the bathroom. Today the contractions are much less frequent, but when I am on my feet I have tons of pressure. I hope I am wrong, but I think this little guy is getting ready to make his appearance sooner than later. I have my OB appt tomorrow and my last dose of progesterone and another NST. We'll see what the doctor says. I know that if the contractions are coming 15 minutes apart for more than a couple hours I need to go to the hospital and hopefully get a shot of terbutaline (sp? I never can get that right). Cross your fingers this little guy cooperates! I have another test in 18 days and would really like to keep him in until then!

Good luck! Keep us posted on your appointment. I hope he stays in there for a while longer.

Ughh that is a long time to be having them! I have them but mostly in the evening when I finally sit. I am up on my feet all day. I also have been feeling that pressure, but I don't really have the feeling that it's gettting close just yet! KUP on what the doc says!
