That is my nurse's and Doctors answer to everything! A few months ago I was having lots of braxon hicks contractions.... the dr advised to drink more water and pee as soon as I have the urge. OK..... A while back I felt like I had a UTI, nurse said the same thing after my test came back negative. Today I called the nurse about the amount of pressure I am feeling and at the end of the day I feel like the baby is going to fall out (I know, its not THAT easy!) she said "drink more water to dilute the hormones, and pee more often so the uterus doesnt get irritated".
Maybe I am just being a little bit more paranoid about what I am feeling because Chris is gone. This baby just cant come this week! The nurse was very reassuring and told me what to watch for. The baby may be dropping even lower into my pelvis which is causing the discomfort. I am so happy with my OB/GYN dept. When I call with a question, I get transfered to a nurse who takes her time to answer my questions.
