aw bummer! What a tease for you!

Aren’t they called Braxton-Hicks or something? I’m drawing on my knowledge of a Friends episode….just don’t forget your undies in the dr office like Rachel did =]

Wow, Mighty! I would have been the same way. I am hoping we can stick it out as close to 40 weeks as we can.

Like ejs has mentioned, have you experienced Braxton-Hicks yet? I am semi worried about them too. Pretty much everyone I know has had them.

I’m not very medically oriented at all BUT I think I remember that Braxton Hicks are actually good for you, and prepare you for the process of labor, maybe even make it less painful. Sorry you dealt with the pain last night, though! I would have called the doc, too.

Aww, Mighty I’m sorry, that would have scared the crap out of me too! I’ve read on some of the baby boards that it’s not too uncommon to start having labor-like contractions towards the end. I’ve been having BH contractions since around 18 weeks and unlike labor contractions, they aren’t supposed to hurt, they’re more just uncomfortable. I’m glad you’re feeling better now and hopefully you’ll have a chance to talk to your doc today.
