Ok so im 34 weeks and 4 days pregnant with my first who is a boy. I'm due January 27, 2010.
I've been having severe Braxton Hicks everyday, nearly all day long. These have been going on for a month and a half now. I went to the doctors two weeks ago and told them what I was experiencing and they said I need to drink more water. I drink tons of water and still have the pains. Its like they don't care. I asked them how my little guy was laying and how much he weighed and just simple basic things. And they constantly tell me to come back. I'm so tired of hearing come back. Every time I go its always the same thing, they weigh me, take my blood pressure, measure my stomach and send me on my way.
I went and had a 3d sonogram done Tuesday the 15th and the technician said my little guy is very low (so low that she has never seen a baby this low) and he is right against my back. If he doesn't move I could have back labor when he is ready to come.
Do the doctors not listen cause its my first or maybe cause I'm "young" I'm 22 years old. I just want to know more in detail what is going on. I have a friend due a week before me and she is already 3 1/2 centimeters dilated and 80% effaced. I'm not saying I think I'm that far along but I would like to know what is going on.
The pains I have take my breath away and make me stop in my tracks. And they normally last at least an hour. How do I get the doctors to tell me more information or even listen to me?
Thanks ladies for all your help.
