Definitely keeping an eye out for those troubling pains though, Dr apt tomorrow. Probably will have another ultrasound to monitor my fluid levels since they're high
I'm glad they tapered off. If you've got high levels of fluid it can cause quite a lot of niggles , I had polyhydramnios in my last pregnancy and I contracted all day every day toward the end . But they weren't ever sore , just moderately uncomfortable. Definitely mention it and if you get another bout of them , defiantly call L&D . Much better safe than sorry

I'm glad the contractions ended and also glad you're seeing your doctor tomorrow. Good to keep an eye on these things.

Apt went well, they told me I should stop driving and they switched me to weekly appointments since polyhydramnios may cause early contraction/cramps and early labor. Baby is very active though!
