Call your doctor. I was told to go to the hospital if I have more then 6 in one day. I know it’s not what you want to hear..

Also they recommend drinking tonssss of water and lying down and relaxing. So maybe drink like 24oz of water and relax and see if you continue.. But I would call at least. 

Good luck! Keep us posted On what you do!!

I just went into the hospital yesterday because I had contractions–7 big ones in 45 minutes–that were so strong they made me feel sick. Turned out to be nothing, just BH, but if you’re at all nervous I’d just keep track and then call the maternity unit or your OB to run it by them. They may ask you to come in for a checkup (with me, they did bp/urine tests, hooked me up and monitored the babies’ hearts and my uterine activity for about 45 minutes, and did a cervical exam to check for dilation and swab for infection), but the peace of mind will be good for you. It’s helped me to relax knowing that the babies are fine, my cervix is still long-ish, and my membranes are intact! You don’t have to go all freak-out-ninja on them, just explain what’s been happening and ask if it’s normal at this stage in your pregnancy. 

 

The girls are also super active, by the way, and the midwife said yesterday that movement is a really good sign–one that they’d use above other indicators to get a feel for how the baby is doing. I was getting worried because they were thrashing about so much, but she just said that the movement is a really good sign.

I would say they are strong BH but my doc said that if they are so strong that you are having to breathe through them then you need to call the doc. Just call to get peace of mind. Hope your LO still cooks a little bit longer Sept momma! Keep us informed!

@cowgirlace:  Glad they stopped! I had BH 3-4 minutes apart while getting an NST on Sunday and they sent me home and told me to come back/call them when they started getting to where it was difficult to talk through them. Of course, they told me I could always come in for reassurance if needed!

@cowgirlace:  Usually if you change whatever it is you are doing i.e. get up and walk around if you are lying down, get some water, etc and they stop than they are BH.  I didn’t have BH with DD but have had them like crazy with this LO.  Yesterday morning were the worst by far, but I’m 40 weeks!  They started mid 2nd trimester.  The real deal is definitely lower and more painful than the squeezing/tightening feeling of BH.  Hang in there they are good for your body and baby!
