Pregnancy contractions on one side

Common Questions and Answers about Pregnancy contractions on one side

contractions

This is my third pregnancy and i have never experienced contractions on one side. Your whole stomach should be getting extremely.tight and hard(usually 3-5 minutes apart for an hour or more)That is a contraction which can be followed or accompanied by cramps and back aches.
At 34 weeks, you'll most likely have braxton hicks contractions fairly often. With my first pregnancy, I wasn't sure what they were until I had one at my doctor's office and she said that is what it was. For me it wasn't painful (though for others they can be), but felt like the baby's head was pushing out of my stomach. My stomach would tighten and get hard like a basketball for several seconds and for the longest time I just thought it was the baby moving funny...
not sure how i know if there real ones now or not 37+4 i was 2 centimeters on tuesday... has ne one had contractions that lead to real labor but they didnt really seem super intense?
and ino for a fact that it isnt BH contractions because it has been going on for days now.. im 30 weeks and i tried drinking water it didnt stop i tried laying down in another position still hurt i cnt even walk without pains being worse.. this is my first pregnancy do u think i shud go to the ER?
I had more than 15hrs of really strong contractions yesterday that was 3 minutes apart that somehow managed to do nothing but cause me a lot of pain and 2 trips to l&d. Your doctor will probably begin checking you this week and I'll definitely mention them to your doctor. My weaker contractions have done more than the strong ones did and I went to 3cm 60% effaced in 2weeks.
I keep drinking water, walking around, laying on my left side!! They aren't getting closer together or stronger, but they are staying about the same strength and starting to grate on my nerves. My dh thinks I should go in to get checked, but I know they'll just send me home telling me that it is only BH!! Just under 7w left for me!!!
The best thing to do that really helps me stop them is chug the water and lay down on your left side and breath. One thing that causes them besides lack of water is having to pee so go pee every hour even if you don't feel the urge. But if you drink that water you will have too' lol I swear up and down I'm drinking enough water but I'm thinking my body just needs a little more than normal.
So since I haven't gotten many feed back on here like I do on babycenter I was wondering does anyone get cramps on only one side on your first trimester? Like I hadn't had them just yet and tonight I am having them cramps ok and off like contractions... But mild though. Is it normal?
Menstrual-like cramps have also started over the past few days. Have any of you experienced real contractions as one-sided pain?
I am not sure if thats a contractions. Pretty sure it wouldnt just be on one side but... could it be sciatic nerve pain?
I went to hospital yesterday because I thought my water had broke but turns out it was just a leak and got sent home, this morning i've been having pains in my lower belly like I need to poo, and i've just had one as we speak, i've been to the toilet and I dont need to do anything, they dont last very long but do hurt and they're like an hour apart or just over an hour, I havent timed them, could they have been wrong about my water breaking?
I had alot of early braxton hicks... I mean really irregular non painful... then around 25 week i started having only 1 or 2 a day... When I ended up in the hospital because I had the pain associated with 2 one morning, it showed my cervix very short already so my practice contractions were creating cervical change.. When I was in the hospital... I started out having them every 30 mins to an 1 hr... then it started going 45 to 1.5 hours... then all over the place....
Im currently 35w 5d & having pretty frequent, extremely uncomfortable contractions. they do not stop w changing position or drinking water & laying on my left side. at my last OB appt (4 days ago), I was a fingertip dilated. this is my second child and my first was born at 38 weeks..is this normal? could my due date be off by a whole month? so confused.
It would start like peeiod cramps in my lower back then radiate up one side and down the other then Go away, that happened 3 times a few minutes apart before i could stand up. I drank some water and went to bed and have been Fine since....were these real contractions?
I will feel my uterus tighten and when I lay flat I can see and feel a bulge a little smaller than the size of my fist in my lower abdomen usually on the right side. I started massaging them and found they will usually go away after. A Braxton Hicks contraction is defined by Taber's Medical dictionary as an intermittent, painless contraction that may occur every 10 to 20 minutes after the first trimester of pregnancy.
keep timing your contractions, and let your OB know when they get down to about 5 minutes apart on a regular basis, your water breaks or you lose your mucus plug. good luck to you... sounds like you will be holding your beautiful baby before you know it!
As it is I am stuck trying to stay off my feet and stressing out every time I get one. Plus because this has been going on for so long today it's really starting to hurt. I have this all over crampy feeling now like even after the bh is gone I'm still tight and sore. My dh had to take my son to baseball practice so I'm home with our toddler who is being a doll right now and watching a movie with me.
They sound like normal pregnancy symptoms unfortunately... i have the same pain on my right side and the doctor said its just sciatic nerve pain. The only thing that helps me is a ton of pillows in all different positions until the pain is gone. Your body is just sore. You're almost there though!
I had 2 with NO epidural and with the three epidurals I DID have, only one took, I highly recommend that you get one! The one that I did have made my labor a dream. Delivery still hurt like crazy, but thats another story. Think I have scared you enough for one day. But you wanted the truth and that's my story. Everyone is different, but they don't call it labor for nothing. Sure wish they called it dessert or vacation.
Im 22 weeks and my baby boy kicks all the time that he makes me sore on right side. HE is definetly his fathers son a pain in the side. LOL. I cant wait until he comes out.
No bleeding during pregnancy is normal, but it's probably not a big deal since it is old blood. Call your doctor today.
I have that too mostly when i get up and its really sharp pain it hurts like hell. I wanna know too if anyone knows what it is.
It feels like I run a marathon and then have a cramping pain in only one side in the same area and mine is pretty high up. I asked and doctor said it was the ligament stretching. You may want to call just to be on the safe side.
Normally..contractions dont just happen on one side..u might have like a bladder infection or a kidney infection...u should get checked out ...
I called doctor and he said to hydrate myself, relax as much as possible, try walking (stops Braxton hicks), then lay on my left side. He said they may just be caused by fetal movement, but this is painful and I have stage 4 Endometriosis , so I know painful. Its 1242am where I am and have had these pains for the last hour. Feet are elevated and water jug hasn't left my side, but nothings helping. Any advice?
Like seriously stuck. My doctor had to get his feet on the side of the bed to help pull her out because her shoulder wouldn't cooperate and move. I didn't even know she got stuck or that they cut me so they could get her out the rest of the way. They told me all this but I was so ready to see her and I was busy pushing that I wasn't really listening to what they had to say lol. You'll do just fine.
I too have a question - my son is 21 and I do not remember ANYTHING about his pregnancy as I was only 16 when he was born and of course at that time I had other things on my mind. I will be 18 weeks with twins boys on Thursday 9/27 and have woken up in the middle of the night to roll over and had shooting pains along my lower abdomen. I will have a few during the day but they aren't quite as intense. Could these be BH contractions? I can't remember what to expect.
i had two big ones at 26 weeks, just my whole stomach cramped up and then that was it
