I have had a pretty smooth pregnancy, up until last weekend, when I started having contractions. I was in L&D last Saturday and Sunday night due to contractions, they were able to stop them both times and I was only a "finger tip" dilated. I've been on "bed rest" at home since. The problem is that since the contractions I've not been feeling well. I've been misserable, and my stomach feels like it's been hit by a truck. I haven't had much of an appetite and not been able to go to the bathroom very easily. I feel like my baby has possibly moved into a position that is compromising my jpouch. He seems to stay up in my diaphragm and front right side. I'm suppose to go back to work Monday, but really don't have the energy. I'm so tired and weak all the time. I've lost about 5 lbs since last weekend. I'm going to call my OB on Monday and try to get in to see her. I feel like I know my body pretty well and that I should feel better by now. Anyone had similar problems or advice?
