Common Questions and Answers about Contractions in lower abdomen
I woke up this morning have pain in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lower</span>abdomen on my right side. It hurts pretty bad. Sometimes I have cramps which I know may be contractions, but this hurts even when those are gone. I am 36 weeks, so I don't know what it is. Do you think it may be something serious or should I wait it out a little longer? Do you think it might be my appendix?
On my left side right over my overy is a very sharp pain, i have crampsalong my lower belly, (feels more like contractions than reg. AF cramps)and I ache BAD in my groin/vaginal area, thighs and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lower</span> back and sometimes through the day I have this horrible sharp feeling like a knife is going up me through vagina and twisting into my uterus. It's very sharp. that comes and goes, but is happening more and more. sometimes it will wake me up at night and I can't move.
I've also been having Braxton Hicks contractions for the past month but they were mostly mild pain in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lower</span>abdomen and my stomach hardening and once I would lay on my left side and drink a bunch of water they would eventually subside. Also the baby is still moving but when he kicks during the cramping it feels like my uterus is going to break open. Is this what contractions feel like or does it sound just like normal pregnancy pains?
I literally just got home from my doctor and they had to stop my contractions. For me it started out in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lower</span>abdomen on only the left side. They were so strong I couldn't move or breathe through them and it left me with tears in my eyes after each one. Those went away and about an hour later i started feeling a cramping that I can only explain as feeling almost like diarrhea cramps, in my whole belly.. It quickly started wrapping around into my back and my spine.
when we were leaving I ended up with really sharp pains in the top of my belly and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lower</span>abdomen, and when I would sit it would hurt so bad I couldn't breathe. I know the baby is head down and lightning but i dont know if i lost my mucus plug..
could this be contractions or something else?
