So I just found out why I have been in so much pain. Went to the doctors yesterday and was diagnosed with irritable uterus. Which simply means that your uterus contracts without causing any changes in your cervix, or labor. However, having irritable uterus based on some of the research I have done you can never know when you can have irritable uterus and then when it can suddenly switch to being in preterm labor or labor.

Has anyone else be diagnosed with this? Have you done any research or have questions? Or have already been through this... What did you do... what happen?

I was 9 days late. I had 7 days of regular contractions. And one dray of painful ones, then it all changed! I couldn't walk, or move when contracting, it hurt so much I couldn't even stand anymore. I knew it was real labor. Also you can watch for your waters to break, then it's for sure real labor.

I had this with my second pregnancy, annoying but not harmful. Trust me, when real labor starts you will KNOW!
