Horrible Cramps,No Bleeding
I'm 23 Weeks pregnant.
On Wednesday I had HORRILBE cramps. It was very intense pain, I could't walk, sit or stand comfortably. Even breathing made the pain worse. The cramping was all over my abdomen. I have a fairly high pain tollerance but this was REALLY intense. My boyfriend and I were shopping for Maternity clothing and I just couldn't continue. I had to leave the store immediatly and was in such bad pain.
I went to Urgent Care but by the time we got there 1.5 hours... the pain had decreased. They hooked me up to a belt to check if my uterus was contracting, and it did a couple of times. The nurse said, oh "did you feel that" and I explained to her that I did feel it but that wasn't even uncomfortable in comparision to the pain I was feeling before.
Has anyone had this type of pain? The Nurses and Doctors thought I was crazy and that I was probably having heart-burn or indigestion. Urrrrhhhh. It's so frusterating that they don't beleive you. The pain re-occured that night around 5am. Woke me up from a sound sleep. I didn't return to the doctors though, i just took the day off and rested.
The baby's heart beat is great and I can still feel him moving all around. The only think I can think of is maybe it's my muscles growing and tearing? Maybe they were pulled or something and caused me a lot of pain because i'm growing so quickly?
