I just don't know....

Postby mamadru10 » Wed Oct 24, 2012 7:54 am

Not sure if I should call my doc again or what ... I starting losing my plug in chunks yesterday morning (huge chunks). About an hour and a half later I started to have frequent loose Bm and menstrual pains in my lower back. It's dull and always there but seems to get worse every few minutes before returning to a dull period like ache again. I am having contractions but they are hard for me to track because most of the pain is in my back. My pelvic bones feel like they are being pushed appart really badly. I feel like I'm going to throw up constantly and I'm insanely moody... idk what this is, any input would be appreciated!

I would call. A lot of what you describe sounds like labor to me. Can't hurt to run it by your doctor.
Good luck.

Lurking...

DEFINITELY call! The back pain could just be back labor. I'd start tracking whenever you feel any cramping or back pain and see how far apart those are. Good luck!!!

Sounds like the start of labor to me. I would time every time you get the pain in your back. I had back labor with DS. I would call and let them know how far apart they are. Good luck!

Has been happening every night now since the day it all started, so far no baby. I don't know how much longer my body will do this or how much longer I can keep my sanity. OB appointment today, going to stop trying to be the good quiet patient now and complain about it till my hearts content, hopefully that will help provide some insight and maybe even some relief!

I had false labor on and off for weeks. It was awful. And none of it progressed me. I was so glad when she came and the contractions stopped. Hopefully yours is over soon. :luck:

Doc made me cry today :(... all the pain and absolutely no changes. I even had a couple contractions while in the office, he says he is pretty sure that I will make it to my induction date with the way my body isn't doing anything this time around.

I'm sorry. That was me. All the contractions and painful ones did nothing. And DD never dropped down and I ended up with a repeat c-section. The end is in site for you though.

I expected to know exactly what was going on this time around as I'm not a FTM, but it just all feels so different every single time. DS1- didn't even know I was in labor till it was too late DS2- Doc said I was in labor and to go to the hospital, I had ctrx with him but I was also making progress. Guess all I can do is rely on knowing that there is at most 22 sleeps till she has no choice but to come.

Oh honey! :( I'm so sorry to hear that! I am praying that these contractions either stop being so painful or that baby decides to come sooner than the induction date!

That sounds just awful! I hope that you start to progress and things start moving very soon. Hang in there. It'll be over soon!
