So, my uterus contracts a lot. Every day. And sometimes it's really, really bad. This morning, for example, it woke me up.
I can't say that it hurts. It's just uncomfortable, and it SCARES THE CRAP out of me. And I'm at the point now where I'm just constantly scared.
Whenever I have a bad bout of it, I call, and they say the same thing: Come in if you have more than 8 in an hour that are longer than 40 seconds each, or if anything else changes. I time them, though, and usually what I have is more frequent, but shorter. So I don't go in, and convince myself that I'll try to make it to the next appt. The one time that I did go in, it was because I felt crampy, too; they hooked me up the the monitor, were alarmed by the contrax, and gave me a shot.
As of my last appt, three weeks ago, my cervix was still long and closed. I have another appt today. I'm wondering, in advance of that, if any of you experienced this, and what you recommend I ask the doctor. I feel like I've had the same conversation with them about half a dozen times, and I need to approach it differently. Or, maybe I'm overreacting?
