Let me just say I'm already 2cm and 70%. I was barely 2cm and hardly effected a week ago. My doc said to go to l&d for any changes because she said my cervix feels like its doing things.
Today I'm having this weird pain, its constant and across my lower abdomen into my butt and cervix. It's sharp and and like a ripping feeling. Kinda. But not like the round ligament pain you get. It eases off, then comes back super sharp in waves. They aren't timeable, I don't think. And I have pressure. And nausea.
I've drank water, changed position, tried going to the bathroom (I've been going regularly), laid down. Nothing helps or stops it. It isn't getting better. Just worse. When it peaks I want to punch someone, I'd say 6-8 pain scale.
Any ideas? Could this be contractions? I tried to nap for an hour but hurt so bad I felt it in my dream. Putting on my shoes to go to l&d right now, but I don't want to go and get blown off again. (They send me there once a week at least and its frustrating because they are a wait and see facility and not very proactive.)
I slept through the beginning of labor with my first. So I have no idea how it starts.
