Pregnancy Update / Could This Be It?

Greetings/assalamu alaikum, my next doctor’s appointment is tomorrow morning, Inshallah, that is if I make it lol. I’ve been having contractions since about 3 or so this morning, they’ve been coming every 10 to 20 minutes or so. Not enough to cause me to go to th ehospital, as my water hasn’t broken yet, but just enough to make me sore/uncomfortable lol.

And I don’t think it’s the Braxton Hicks contractions, or what I like to call the “dummy contractions”, etc. Because these actually hurt, and there’s quite a bit of backpain involved.

I just wish I could sleep for a while, though, lol, because as it stands now, just when I’m getting to sleep good, that’s when I get one and it wakes me up.

So are these the real thing, or are they just really hard Braxton Hicks contractions? Guess this is something I’ll need to ask my doctor tomorrow I guess. I just hope I’m not overreacting or something. Because whatever the case I feel really uncomfortable.

    Its so hard to tell with the first baby. I would say if they are keeping you awake probably.

    This could be the real thing. I never had the back labor, but some women do. My water also never broke on its own. Each time, they broke it after I was at the hospital.
    Be sure to get as much rest as possible, and also eat a little bit and drink plenty of fluids. And if the contractions start coming five minutes apart, call the doctor and have your husband drive you to the hospital.
    Hope all goes well. I’ll be thinking of you and making du’a. Let us know!
