I had my 30 week appointment today and the timing was perfect b/c last night I started having constant lower back pain/achiness and then woke up to a lot of uterus tightening (dare I say contractions???).

Hope those contractions stay away. Yay for low weight gain. I too have not gained much (actually I lost) however I started out a plus size girl so its not as big a celebration for me, lol.

I hope those contractions stay away and it's good that your cervix is still closed.

Glad your cervix isn't dilating yet! Definitely keep an eye on those contractions though. I live 40 minutes from the hospital and once my contractions reach 15 minutes apart for more than 30 minutes I go in to l&d. Usually by the time I get there they are anywhere from 5 -10 minutes apart and I need the terbutaline and i.v.'s to help stop them.
