Am having (very) irregular, but painful cramps and contractions. At what point would you guys ring the hospital? Or would you wait a few hours to see if they ease off?
I saw the MW yesterday and she said everything was fine, LOs heartbeat was fine and she was only 2/5ths engaged so I feel that I'd be silly to go in. She even said 'with 3/5ths palpable you've probably got awhile to go'. LO hasn't moved either from yesterday, so I haven't felt her drop further or anything.
I've tried paracetamol, a bath, my ball and some tea and it's not helped yet. In fact I'd almost say its got worse in the past hour. I'm also lactating a lot more than usual to the point where I'm soaking breast pads and I'm very nauseous.
I know that irregular contractions don't mean anything though and that say regular ones are the ones to look for.
I've had another bath and am trying the ball again.Haven't called yet. I just feel like since I saw a MW yesterday it'd be silly to ring. I told her I'd be having period like cramps and she said it's normal, but they are definitely more sore now. Nothing near to what proper contractions would be like though (else I wouldn't be on here!).
