yesterday and today my braxton hicks have been getting worse.
They feel like menstrual cramping that hurts, last about 1 minute or 2, then go away, only to return no more than 3 minutes later. This happened for about two hours yesterday before the BH would only come randomly and not as frequent. This morning it started up again, same thing, frequent and painful braxton hicks. i drink plenty of water and try to change positions, but it doesn't work.
do i need to call my doctor about this, or wait until my next appointment to mention it? i am about to turn 32 weeks.View Thread
I'm 29 weeks and 1 day, and I just noticed when I went to the bathroom that my discharge was yellow in color and like a giant glob of mucus. I was able to wipe it all out of my underwear without it sticking to the panty liner. (sorry for the tmi). I'm also a little nauseous and feeling baby kick really low down there (she is usually higher up). I just want to make sure that everything is normal and that I'm not being paranoid!View Thread
I'm 25 weeks pregnant, and yesterday morning my face had swollen up quite a bit, as well as my feet. In fact, it was uncomfortable to walk around for five minutes on my feet. I had taken my blood pressure in the morning and it was 147/96. When I would press down on my feet, it would take a while for the skin to get back to normal. Kind of like dimples. So I called my doctor and went in during the afternoon. When they took my blood pressure over there, it was normal. They didn't mention anything else about the swelling, but sent me to take my glucose test and to get the Rhogam shot. Should I still be concerned about the swelling? Especially since my blood pressure was high in the morning and normal in the afternoon? My face and feet are swollen again today. My feet were hurting again the moment I woke up.View Thread
