but i didnt even jynx it!!

Last night I was really thinking today would be baby day. I had contractions last night every 6-10 minutes for 5 hours. And they were lasting a minute each! I really thought I was headed for real labor. I even called my baby sitters just in case. I thought about coming here to post it... Then was like 'no... I dont want to send out a false alarm before I'm sure.' Around 4am they stopped and I'm back at my baseline BH every 30 minutes. It's making me crazy!!

I have been every 4 min since yesterday at about noon. How can it last so long and be nothing??? They start in my back go to my belly then turn into pain in my crotch and bottom. This is making me crazy!!!!

Sorry you are frustrated too! Won't be long now!

Ugh joy awful isn't it? The only thing that kept me out of L+D last night was just waiting for the intensity to increase. It's a good thing I've experienced real labor before or I would be so confused! I bet after last night I'm a 5 lol

I eventually just got up, every time I would fall asleep my back would start aching and then I would get sooooo hot, anyway. I know if this was my first baby I would have been to L&D about 4 times by now,. They just don't get more intense!

same here! I told my mom and Dh that the other day. I was having so many BH and contrax that I would have been convinced it was time. Now I know its nothing.

I'm opposite. I'm one of those people that just keeps thinking it's nothing so I never go to the hospital, dr, etc.... I could totally see myself not thinking I'm in labor & then realizing it too late. lol
