this is 2 seperate posts i put on another site and got no help so i am hoping someone here can help...

I AM PREGNANT W/ NUMBER 3, HE HAS ALREADY TRIED 2 TIMES TO COME AND THE LABOR WAS STOPPED BOTH TIMES BUT I STILL MANAGED TO DILATE 1CM AND EFFACE 70% NOW THAT I AM IN MY 35TH WEEK THEY WONT STOP LABOR, THEY GAVE ME THE SHOTS FOR HIS LUNG DEVELOPMENT INCASE HE DID COME AND THEY COULDNT STOP IT BUT SO FAR SO GOOD, HES UP AND CHANGED HIS MIND. LOL. ANYWAY, IVE BEEN EXPERIENCING CONTRACTIONS FOR QUITE AWHILE IN THIS PGY BUT FOR THE PAST WEEK, THEY HAVE GONE FROM TIGHTENING, BACK ACHE TO BAD CONSISTANT CRAMPING LIKE IM GOING TO START MY PERIOD, ALL 3 TYPES ARE WOUND TOGETHER SO I GET ALL 3 EVERYDAY. IT MAKES IT HARD TO TELL WHATS REAL AND WHATS NOT BUT NONE ARE CONSISTANT IN TIMING BUT THEY WERENT THE FIRST TIME I WAS IN LABOR, 4 MIN HERE, 7 THERE, 10 HERE 3 THERE, NEVER A EVERY SO MANY MINUTES SO THE FIRST TIME WHICH CAUSED THE CERVIX TO CHANGE, I THOUGHT IT WAS BRAXTON HICKS. AM I TOO JUST WAIT FOR MY WATER TO BREAK OR WHAT, I CAN AND WILL NEVER TELL IF THE CONTRACTIONS ARE REAL OR NOT AT THIS RATE, ANYONE EVER EXPERIENCE THIS? IF SO, WHAT DID YOU DO? ALSO, TMI BUT I HAVE BEEN PASSING PARTS OF PLUG EVERY COUPLE OF DAYS, ITS NOT PINK OR RED JUST YUCKY YELLOW. THE 1ST GLOB WAS HUGE AND THIS WAS BEFORE CERVICAL CHANGE AND DOC SAID IT WAS PART OF PLUG, NOW ITS LITTLE THICK SMEARS OF IT BUT NOT GLOBS. I HAVE ALSO BEEN EXPERIENCING LOOSER BOWELS WHERE I USE TO STAY CONSTIPATED, ALL THESE ARE SIGNS OF LABOR COMING BUT THE CONTRACTIONS ARE MY CONFUSION AREA. ANY INTAKE I WOULD SURELY LOVE. well, and update. i went in thursday last week, and i progressed to 2 cm, she told me to come off the contraction pills and wait for my water to break, she said, either i would do it, the baby would do it or the excess fluid which is only 1 cm more than normal would do it and last night i was in tears, ashton was pulling the lightening thing on me, it felt like he was a screw driver and i was the wood. it caused really extremely sharp pins and needles pain, it was like being constipated to the max and you get those sharp pains that last a sec but make you stop walking or moving, that was what it felt like, then with every twist of his head, i thought my bags were going to bust because it felt sooooo low. he moved less when he was down low. but he kept bouncing up and i would feel great and then he'd do it again, this went on all night, i know its coming, diarrhea, contractions, dilating and effacing, lost plug and still losing mucous, plus what happened last night, its coming and coming soon. and the doc wont stop it, i just started my 36th week today. and hes measuring at 38 weeks. im just waiting for the water to break or for something to tell me its the real thing. but last night i dont know what that was a sign of. i never went through all this before. they induced me with hunter and everything started after my water broke with renni. what do you think happened last night? i am also getting cramping like i am about to start period.

I didn't experience a lot of what you've mentioned but as far as Braxton Hicks go, usually they stop by drinking water or lying on one side. For me the real contractions were unmistakable. I'd just call your doctor and explain whats been going on and get his opinion. Good luck! hug.gif

IT WAS NO CONSISTANT CONTRACTIONS THAT GOT ME WHERE I AM NOW, LOL. SO SHE BASICALLY SAID, MY WATER IS JUST GOING TO BREAK AND NOT FOCUS ON THE CONTRACTIONS, THIS PGY HAS BEEN OFF THE WALL, EVERYTHING THEY SAY ABOUT WHAT ARE REAL CONTRACTIONS AND WHAT IS FAKE DONT APPLY HERE OBVIOUSLY. BUT I AM WORRIED ABOUT THAT INSTANT SHARP, TAKE MY BREATH AND LEAVE ME MOTIONLESS FOR A SEC ON AND OFF WHEN HE IS LOW, THATS WHAT I WANT INFO ON AND THE CRAMPING THAT SHE SAYS ISNT CONTRACTIONS, WHAT AM I GOING THROUGH, IT GETS PAINFUL TO WHERE I CRY WHEN ITS AT ITS WORSE AND ITS GETTING MORE INTENSE EACH DAY. WHAT IS HOLDING MY WATER IN, I AM SO AFRAID THAT I WILL BE 9 CM DILATED BEFORE IT HAPPENS AND NOT BE ABLE TO MAKE IT TO THE HOSPITAL, MY DAUGHTERS LABOR FROM START TO FINISH AND THATS FROM WATER BREAKING TO ACTUAL BIRTH INCLUDING THE HOUR THEY MADE HER STAY IN WHILE THE DOCTOR WAS IN SURGERY WAS A TOTAL OF 4 HRS, 3 IF THEY WOULDVE LET ME PUSH AT 10 CM. WHAT IS GOING ON, I ACTUALLY BEG THIS GUY TO BREAK THE BAG, BUT HE JUST TORTURES IT, LOL, HES DEVELOPED AT 38 WEEKS, HES HAD THE SHOTS FOR HIS KIDNEYS, HES BETWEEN 6 AND 7 LBS ALREADY AND THE DOCTOR SAYS HE CAN COME ANY MOMENT AND SHES TELLING ME TO WORK AND RUN AND DO WHATEVER I WANT. JUST TO WAIT FOR THE WATER TO BREAK, WHAT IF IT NEVER HAPPENS, AM I TO HAVE A 10 OR 11 LB-ER. IAM I TOO FEEL LIKE THIS FOR WEEKS, AND IT IS GETTING STRONGER EACH DAY I TELL YOU, I FEEL LIKE I AM 38 WEEKS RATHER THAN 36. AND I AM SO TIRED OF PEOPLE CALLING ME FAT, BIG, HUGE, TELLING ME NOT TO HAVE THIS BABY AT WORK, ASKING ME IF IM SURE THERE IS ONLY ONE. MY BELLY IS THE ONLY THING THAT GOT ATTACKED WITH WEIGHT AND ITS ALL PGY WEIGHT AND THESE PEOPLE ARE BIGGER THAN I AM WITHOUT AN EXCUSE. I TELL THEM AT LEAST I HAVE A REASON FOR MY BELLY, WHATS YOURS. THESE ARE PEOPLE I WORK WITH AND THEY ALL HAVE KIDS TOO. OBVIOUSLY THESE PEOPLE ARE CRUEL CREATURES. I JUST WISH I COULDVE SEEN THEM PGT. I THINK IM PICTURE PERFECT WITH THIS PGY, I LOSE WEIGHT OVER WEEKS AND THEN GAIN IT BACK IN 1 WEEK. TO ME THATS ELEVATED WEIGHT GAIN. I WAS 140 BEFORE PGY AND THATS HAVING 2 KIDS AND I KNOW I AM NOWHERE NEAR 200 BUT THEY ACT LIKE I AM, IM GOING TO LOSE ALMOST ALL OF MINE BUT THEY WONT. THATS THE ONLY THING THAT KEEPS MY HEAD HELD HIGH BUT I STILL HATE BEING THE SPOT OF EVERYONES CRUELTY SINCE I AM THE ONLY ONE LEFT THATS FAR IN PGY, THE OTHER GIRL ALREADY HAD HER BABY AND SHE WORKED DAYS AROUND THE MORE MATURE PEOPLE, AND I GOT NIGHTS WITH THE IDIOTS SINCE I CANT WORK DAYS. WELL, IM RANTING BUT I WISH SOMEONE COULD HELP ME OUT.....

Well I didnt go thru that, I never went into labor either one of my children. However if I was experiancing the pains like you are then I would be checked by the dr ASAP. And if he is just blowing you off then I would get another dr ASAP.

My only guess as to what could be causing the sharp pains is that the baby is dropping and things are moving around in preparation...sorry we can't be of more help hug.gif

went to doc appt. still dilated 2 and 70%effaced, he said another week or two and ash will be here. but then he contradicted himself by saying, take it easy so we can get him to stay in another week, like i can control my pgy, im measuring 39-40 weeks already. what does he want me to do, put a cork in it. if only i could. i want him to stay in there at least a bit longer but not way past lol. thats why i like my doctor, she gets to the point and never contradicts herself when speaking. some doctors i swear dont know what they are doing or saying. i did on the other hand experience a tremor yesterday morning, what a scary thing and the doctor that i saw said its normal in pgy. it has to do with blood pressure or blood sugar dropping. it was a different doctor i saw since mine was out on vacation. he said if it happens again call 911, i was like, no one i know ever experienced tremors during pgy and it didnt last long, what are they going to do, by the time emt's got here the tremor would be gone and there would be nothing they can do. he said i'd have to be experiencing it while they witnessed it. what good would it do of the tremor passes by the time the ambulance got here. what a freakin nut... i hope i never have to see him again. he leaves the mind boggled thats for sure. oh well, ashton will come when HE is good and ready, im not going to push it, im leaving it all up to him. i was contracting too 5 min apart while on the nst and the nurse seemed concerned that i was but it was no big deal to him. thats why ive giving up on these darn things and focusing more on my water breaking. ill worry about the contractions after that. the nurse also called our son a wild child, they heard his kicking all the way down the hall, lol, the nurses and doctors were laughing about it, i swear he was drawing back that big foot of his and then wailing the monitor on him. he was low so the heartrate one was low on the belly and the contraction one was at my belly button and thats where his feet were, my mom and i was getting a big kick outta his kicks. lol. atleast we know he can keep up with his sisters meanness when hes born hehe. it must be the shrimp he craves. that and blackberry cobbler. lol
