    Yep, feels like I've had the worst period for the last few weeks! :dohh:
    I'd take my normal periods over this any day lol.. I do suffer from period pain anyway but at least I can usually take nurofen for it!

    Starting last week I've been having contractions and cramps on and off. Sometimes regular enough to time, and other times just randomly.

    I've been dilated to 3 cm since Easter and I've had that crampy pain on and off for weeks. I'm pretty sure they're contractions but they'd been totally irregular up until this past Saturday, when we went to the hospital after having contractions for over two hours 3-4 minutes apart. And I still got sent home! I'm just not dilating any further and my membranes have not ruptured. It's driving me crazy but I guess it'll happen eventually. Stubborn little ox baby I have!

    What kind of cramps? I get them once in a while, I get pretty weird feelings all the time. The worst one for me lately is the pins and needle feeling up my baby chute!!!

    Ew yes! Sometimes it's like a lightning bolt! That is definitely uncomfortable. My doctor says its from the pressure of the baby on the floor of the uterus/cervix.

    well at least your feeling a little better. Did you try the tylenol to help with the cramping? I was also told a heating pad really helps and to drink lots of water, like we arent already right:rofl:
    let me know if anything changes ok....you know im here for you!!!!:hugs:
