So yesterday and today I have been having what I believe are BH contractions. I had them early on from about 15-20 weeks. The problem is that since they have started again my stomach gets really hard and I can't tell if or when they start or stop. It just feels really hard for several hours and its so hard and tight that my back starts hurting. Well today I definitely overdid it at work. I was on my feet all day, walking a ton, and I could barely make myself take one more step when I walked in the door at home. My stomach had been tight all day and my back hurt so bad. I took a bath as soon as I got home and my stomach was hard the whole time I was in the bath. I got out and went straight for the couch on my left side. I thought it was getting better, but as I lay here my ribs started hurting really bad and I felt my stomach and it was really hard again. I asked my husband to get me some more water (I drank about 88 oz today so far) to see if that would help. It did help, but then I felt like I had to go to the bathroom and it was hard again (I figured bc I had to go). Even after I went my stomach was hard as a rock. I wouldn't say the actual contractions hurt, but they kill my ribs and make it feel like my ribs are expanding and then it ends up making my back hurt really bad. Anyone have any advice for me? Maybe all of that is normal with BH, but I just want to make sure. Plus has anyone had them and not been able to time them? Can't tell when they start or stop.
