    So I've been lying on the couch and I think I've had like 4 or 5 in a little over an hour??? They don't hurt. But they're getting uncomfortable. Should I be concerned??

    I get them like that.. Since you are in due in June though I would def call in because you can have preterm labor. Don't diagnose yourself here eventhough it is most probably nothing. Maybe your dehydrated? Also since you have diabetes you should be checked. Have you been having NST's? I get mine every Tuesday. It used to be every two weeks. Drink water lay on your left side and if it does not go away then call in. That's what I am always being told. Big hugs

    Thanks Janis! No NST's yet.
    I haven't had one since I posted that post. I couldn't remember what my nurse practitioner told me. I thought she said 4 in an hour I should call. Then I've heard if they get stronger you should call. Uh oh spoke too soon. There's another one.
    I'm gonna try the left side thing and see what happens. Thanks babe!

    Dont forget 4-6 glasses of water! I was so close to preterm and it was so scary in my 20's.. Hope it works girly. Yep over 4 in one hour you should call.

    oh I've been drinking a TON of water. I ended up dehydrated with heart palpatations back around 22 weeks. I learned my lesson and stopped drinking soda except maybe once a week. Everything else is water.

    Thanks sweety!! I think I'm gonna go to bed. I gotta work in the morning. :(
    Oh I found these things to help my sweet tooth. Wanted to let you know in case you're having sweets cravings and you can get them up there. Breyer's ice cream makes them. They're called carb smart. It's just vanilla ice cream dipped in chocolate with almonds. Omg they're so good!! 9g of carbs cause they're made with Splenda. Yummmmm.

    Thanks again honey! I'll let you know tomorrow how I feel!!

    My midwife said that anything around 10 per day is acceptable, but that's around one month before the due date.

    Make sure you call if not sure.

    You're too sweet Janis! I feel fine today. I might have had one today but nothing big. Now today baby just won't stop pushing his little butt and feet out and making little bulges. LOL

    Thanks for checking up on me sweety!
