Stupid BH contractions making me crazy...

Ugh, I'm having these way too frequently for my liking. I'm keeping track in my journal and have been having them steady since Sunday afternoon. I know that it's not altogether uncommon for subsequent pregnancies, especially when we overdo it (I moved furniture Sunday morning and that was probably a big mistake, but I had to get our room ready for Zoë while hubby is OOT since he wouldn't want to move things the way I want to, LOL). But still, it's freaking me out. I called the OB on Monday and she told me not to worry since I wasn't having multiple cx every hour and not bleeding, not having pain, etc. But. I still don't like them. I guess I had them with Jake starting at 18w, but my journal is sketchy and I'm not sure how frequent they were.
A couple of times I have had more than one an hour, but this is crazy -- they're only happening when I'm laying down. It's like the more I try to rest, the more I have them. Now I don't want to lay down and chill. And I don't want to do anything else to bring them on. I'm stuck!
I'm sure we're fine since she's kicking (felt the first one from the outside yesterday) and her heart rate is great -- I have a doppler that I use when I start to worry. We have our anatomy scan in one week, so I'm trying to be calm and not go into the doc for this. I don't know that they'd be able to do anything, anyway. Just get another scan, maybe.
Anyhoo. Sorry I've been somewhat absent lately. The last two weeks working were murderous, as they always are when I'm about to take vacation. This week I'm on vacation but have had so much to do around the house. Little stuff remains now, nothing that is taxing, but you know how it is. Gotta get things done while I have down time. Hubby and Libby are both OOT now so it's just me and the boys. Yesterday I let Will vacuum and Jake mop -- wow. Took the floors forever to dry since Jake cannot wring the mop out very well, but, they have to learn. My housework days are over until I birth this baby!
Hope everyone is doing well!
