Hi All, I really hope some of you might be able to help me out. Since my fifth month, in fact soon after I started feeling baby's movements, i also started experiencing what i believe are braxton-hicks contractions every few days, though it took me a few weeks to discover this as I initally thought the unpleasant tight contractions were part of baby's movements. however, i was reassured when i found out that they can start so early and my midwife did not seem too concerned. but since the sixth month started, ive noticed the contractions getting more frequent, like every day or so, and since ive been travelling the last week, theyve increased even more. Today i think i actually mustve experienced contractions like 10-15 times all day, sometimes just half n hr apart. Predominantly everyone tells me its likely due to exertion, and/or dehydration which i admit have been factors since travelling, but i am trying hard to rectify both but contractions are still getting more n more frequent daily. I am very worried, as i dont have access to my midwife or anyone, and when i ask other ppl, no one seems to remember when they started experiencing contractions and how frequently. I dont know whether i need to rush to emergency, or whether i can wait to travel back next week to UK and see my midwife, or if i shud get an appointment to see an OBs while abroad. Any advice, suggestions, experiences, would be welcome. thanks in advance.
