Irritable Uterus

Officially 30 weeks today !! So here I am thinking I have been having Braxton Hicks contractions and come to find out I have an irritated uterus. So yesterday I was having a good bit of contractions but not consistent enough for labor. I called my OB ,because it was more than 4 in an hour and that’s when they recommended me to call in, and they asked me to go into L&D. I went and when I got there I felt fine. They hooked me up to the monitors checked to see if I was dilated and to my surprise I was having big irregular contractions. Luckily they weren’t changing my cervix and my FFN test came back negative but still it was pretty concerning. So they kept me for 4 hours gave me a round of shots to stop the contractions and when they felt it was under control let me go home. Has anyone else experienced this before ?

That happens to me lately. But they stopped while I was at the hospital… and I wasn’t even there for those. I was there for bleeding. That also stopped, and had no known cause. :/ I’m 33 weeks.

Aww. I think that’s what’s gonna end up happening with me. Since yesterday my stomach has been getting so hard and back pain has been crazy and the pressure on my V is wild. Gonna call the midwife tomorrow and see what they say

Yes that’s exactly what happens lol. And I can only feel the big ones like even when they put me on the monitor I thought they would send me home and come to find out I’m having big ones frequent that I just don’t notice. That’s what makes me nervous. I didn’t go into labor on my own or have Braxton Hicks with my son so things part is all of new to me.

The pressure down south the last 2 days has caught me off guard. Like feeling like I can hardly walk.. on top of the stupid bh and cramps🙄

Were they painful contractions? I'm 31 weeks 5days, I get constant braxton hicks that are borderline painful. And when I say constant I mean there was a whole week and a half of nonstop bh that didnt let up, they didnt get closer or stronger so i never called my ob. But all day long my uterus is tight and then the bh's start up. They dont go away with rest or anything I just wait them out pretty much. The last 2 days I've had actual like cramps for a few hours at a time that were period like with a little pain in my low back but nothing crazy... idk if this is IU or not, I've got my next appointment on March 23rd and will bring it up then too.

I ended up staying the night in hospital last night due to what they think is an irritable uterus. I was 33 weeks yesterday and got severe pain in my left side that kept coming and going about every 10-15 minutes - I called triage about this, convinced it was something to do with my kidney. By the time I got there the pain had eased off loads and I was just left with a dull ache in my left side. They put me on the monitor and she asked if I could feel the contractions. I could feel a painless tightening every so often but just assumed it was braxton hicks. The monitor showed I was having regular mild contractions approx every 3 minutes. They checked my cervix but it’s still closed - kept me in over night just to make sure nothing progressed and by morning the contractions had stopped so I’ve been set free and told to call triage if I have any further issues. Let’s hope baby holds on for another 7 weeks 🤞🏼
