You need to keep track of how far apart these pains are happening so that you can call your doctor with that information and ask them what they think. I had BH for like 3 weeks straight before I had my son so it could be just those. But with the pain your describing it could be the real thing. So my suggestion is call your doctor and also time the distance between the pains.

Have you been following your bed rest instructions? Maybe you just need to lay down and relax for a little bit. I know that in the last month of my pregnancy if i was doing too much I would get weird pains but resting would help. Also make sure you drink lots of water when you get dehydrated it causes pregnant women to experience abdominal pains too.

2 minutes apart?!! you need to go to the dr girl!! if they are real contractions you could be in active labor. You should go get checked just in case. Two minutes apart is def a green light to go to the dr.

Definitely worth calling the doctor about. I’m in the bed rest for PTL boat too– (fun times!) My gut says it’s worth being extra cautious when you’re dealing with PTL. Esp since I think I read somewhere that you’re dilating already too?  I’d call the doctor and plan to high tail it to the office to get checked out.

Anyway– worst case scenario, you get checked, and if you are in labor that they can’t stop, everything I’ve been reading is 35 weeks usually isn’t bad, in the world of preemies. BUT- best case scenario, you get checked, they tell you everything’s fine and your baby has just been kicking/moving hard. Hoping it’s that one.
