Contractions at 9 weeks?

An_245450 posted:
I am just shy of 9 weeks pregnant with my 5th child. I have had PCOS in the past and as a result have a history of miscarriages between our 2 younger children. With this pregnancy I am suffering from hyperemisis and have a zofran pump. Over the past week I have been feeling contractions (I am sure that is what they are). I know that Braxton Hicks have been known to begin in the first trimester, and it seems that with each pregnancy I have they have been stronger and even quite painful.

This morning, I began having them and over 3 hours they were almost right on top of each other. They did not get stronger and the spacing between was short, but it did vary. Nothing I did helped to relieve them. I have already had 2 ultrasounds done and seen a good heartbeat each time. I also have an appointment set for tomorrow AM for a routine check up.

Is this something that we should be concerned with, or should I be concerned. I have had no bleeding or spotting and the doc also has me on progresterone suppositories as a precaution given my history.

Hello Dear, everything your saying I am going through right now.... I am so worried. I am 9 weeks. I am 37, This is my 4th pregnancy.... I possibly was pregnant with Twins last week and had a miscarriage, Still one baby with a Strong Heartbeat and I am so confused by these contractions, Just left the ER, they tried to give me Vicodin for the pain, and I never said I was in that kinda pain, Just having very breath taking contractions. Not sure what to do. Plan to Call my Dr in the A.M. and I see him again in 2 days. Please give me some information on what they told you.
