I just started in with pain so terrible I often can't even walk. I've been cramping a lot with this pregnancy anyway (they say likely due to having these last 3 so close together). I have 2 toddlers at home, and work as a waitress. My mom is away with my brother and his wife as they're having their first baby, so I'm left to also care for my stepdad who just had major surgery on his spine. Now I'm rendered nearly immobile, and cramping even more severely and contracting more often. I wonder if that's from the excessive pain, stress... or if it's just normal? This is my 4th pregnancy and I've NEVER experienced anything like this. Any advice out there?
