Yesterday afternoon I felt tightening in my belly that lasted about 30 seconds and then went away and I sort of shrugged it off as stretching of the uterus. Last night when I was out and about at Ikea I felt it again, this time it happened twice in the hour we were in IKEA but by the time I got home they had gone away. When I finally got home last night and tried to rest a big it happened again but since then nothing has happened and the baby is moving just fine. I never had any braxton hicks contractions with Jacob (or at least I didn’t feel them) so I’m wondering if that is what these were. I hope that I’m not going to have one of those pregnancies where you just have contractions off and on until the end…how frustrating would that be! I have to say that the contractions I felt were not super painful just slightly uncomfortable and felt a little like period cramps if you ask me. You know, you’d think having done this before that I’d know what was going on but I don’t! The one thing though that is different between this pregnancy and the previous one is that in Jacob’s I would have rushed off to the hospital but this time I know its just par for the course!
