Last night I started getting the most horrible contractions, I could barely think straight, was lightheaded and out of breath each time. My back felt like collapsing. Lasted the entire night, continuing still but not as intense atm. Had some bad ones this morning that made me throw up but I didn't call anyone because I had a morning ob appt anyways so I waited it out. I got checked and am only a half centimeter. Granted, I am 37 weeks, 1 day today but I hadn't known you can get excruciating Braxton hicks contractions. I had thought they were suppose to be painless. And man, that was my first cervical check and it wasn't fun, lol. Ouch. I just want this baby out! I can't sleep because of the pain which is really messing up my mental state. I'll feel so relieved when he is here...which I hope is soon! Anyone else getting bad, painful false contractions? Anyone else going INSANE from still being pregnant? I'm not sure how much more I can take. So close yet so far when you feel terrible.
