Quoting Amy Lynn07:" Oh... This is my first pregnancy so I didn't know that. Just wanted to tell her about what happened to me.. "
I've had three babies and only just found it out, lol I also have an irritable uterus in pregnancy, usually its absolutely no problem beyond being scary for mom who legitimately cannot tell the difference between that and the real deal without a cervical exam. Makes for alot of wasted trips to L & D but better to be safe and know thats all it is right!? I had the added issue of actually having had read pre term labour with a placenta previa in addition to the irritiable uterus, I made a lot of L& D trips because I wasn't in a position to try and wait it out and see since any dilation would cause a great deal of bleeding. When I had it in my next two pregnancies I discovered that I would just need to wait 2-4 hours while lying down and drinking a great deal of water to see if they'd get more intense and longer, if they did then it was real, if they didn't then it was just the irritable uterus. Good luck with yours and I hope it doesn't cause you too much trouble!
