Nightly false labor

Well, here we go again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

6:40 and I am on my third strong contraction. I feel like a witch. I am so sad I will not sleep again. I don't want to throw up and have the runs. I hate this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Does anyone know why it happens at the same time every evening? Also it usually goes til about 3 am. WHY?

I have no idea why Sad Boo to all this fake crap. I've had several painful contractions today. They're actually the first painful ones I've had. I only had two in one hour though. When they hit they make Ryan super active. I think they tick him off....lol I hope the real labor happens for you soon.

I'm curious why they happen at the same time too. My false labour is also always at night. Tonight I've had a couple painful ones, but they still last 2-3 minutes at least :confused: and of course they are totally irregular so they're meaningless...sigh...

Hilary, hopefully they are making some progress for you. Maybe you will have less work when you go in.

I woke up at 3:45 this am with a gush feeling and low back pain and cramping. Every time I have a contraction I feel a trickle. Am I peeing? I really don't want to go ask them. Also I am having more mucus discharge. Ewww! This is getting so gross and old!

I really don't want to wake a ton of people up to be checked, it is 5 now, I'm gonna wait. I hope that is ok.

When is your next appt?

I would go get checked out with the little gush feelings. Maybe you could just get checked in the office in a few hours.

As far as the timing of the false labor, could it be from eating? When do you eat dinner? And what do you eat?
