I've been resting for a few days now because my pelvis wasn't happy, and yesterday I was having lots of Braxton-Hicks contractions. In spite of resting as much as possible and drinking a ton of water, they were not stopping, and were getting more regular, but not painful.

Even so, we needed to go to the hospital for evaluation, and I was there for about six hours getting fluids and meds to stop the contractions. We got home just before five am, and I slept about three hours before I had to go for my (scheduled) fetal monitoring appointment. Then I came home and slept some more.

So now I'm on bed rest for at least a few more days.... If I can't do something while sitting down and relaxing, it probably won't be happening.
