I'm 29 weeks pregnant and was just wondering what everyones braxton hicks contractions felt like and how long they lasted, what real labor feels like and what other discomforts you experienced.
I was at the doc a few days ago after experiencing a horrible night of funny aches in my lower belly around my ovaries, it felt like mild menstruation ache not pain or cramping and when I went to the loo my bladder felt contracted afterward for a few seconds. I also get a similar ache in my lower groin between my legs on each side, My legs getting this dead feeling ( Not pins and needles but just dead) as well as lower back ache with some serious bouts of nausea in the mornings but have been unable to eat in the evening due to the pressure sher puts on my stomach and horrible heartburn I get, I also feel overeaten most of the time.
I can't sleep without my arms and legs getting pins and needles or snoring myself awake lol!! One thing I can be greatful for and hope I don't jinx myself by mentioning it, is that I haven't had any problems with constipation.
Thew doc said welcome to the joys of third trimester pregnancy and told me its braxton hicks contractions and pregnancy discomforts.
I was enjoying pregnancy so much, but now just want this baby out lol!!
Pretty interested to hear what you ladies have gone through.........
