    sorry I haven't posted anything!! It has been a crazy few weeks!! I'll have to try to catch up with what has been happening but in the meantime, I've been having contractions all night.

    it is frustrating though, because they don't seem to be increasing in intensity or frequency......but we will see. I know that this phase of labor can last a long time. I just haven't been able to sleep at all.

    12:34 contractions started
    12:45
    12:56
    1:05
    1:23
    1:30
    1:34
    1:41
    1:47
    1:55
    2:25
    2:32
    2:39
    2:43
    2:50
    2:58
    3:02
    3:07
    3:15
    3:22
    3:31
    3:36
    3:55
    4:03
    4:08
    4:14
    4:19
    4:28
    4:32


    what do y'all think? do they seem to be getting closer together at all? some of them are 4 mins apart and some are like 20........

    Also, quick question- when they are consistently less than 5 mins apart, should I still call my doctor even if they aren't that intense? They hurt momentarily, but it is really nothing......which makes me frustrated and wonder if it is false labor........

    Sorry, don't know if it's the real thing or not...all I know is I had 8 hours of consistant contractions that never increased in pain level and then eventually died out.
    I'm guessing pre-labor? drink a glass of water, can you sleep through them? If not it doesn't hurt to call... I never do because I don't want to make the trip and be sent home or make the trip and they keep me there when they really shouldn't have .
    I HTH...sorry I'm not a better resource at 4am in the morning!

    Ohhh, I am really excited for you!! The timings of your contractions sound exactly like how my BH's get as I am getting closer and closer to the big day. I did actually go in with my last baby to be checked when I had a few hours like you described above, but nothing was happening. I hope that isn't the case for you. It looks like the last 7 times you mention, from 3.55 to 4.32 are more like what you want to see. How long are they lasting?

    A good way to tell if they are real or not, have a warm bath! It always stopped mine, lol!

    Sending lots of labour vibes from across the pond!

    Ooohhh looking good! I know that I had a very long early labor with DD, and I had contraction simular to what your showing all day. While I wouldn't say they hurt I would say they became more intense as they went on. I know that I only had to stop and breath through what were real contractions, bh didn't make me need to stop and breath. HTH and keep us posted!
