With DD, I never had any early labor pains to speak of leading up to the day I went into real honest to goodness labor. I did lose a piece of my mucous plug one week before. But other than that, nothing. No cramps. No back pains (other than general achiness you'd expect from carrying extra weight). Then the morning that I went into Labor I woke up with menstrual-type cramps. I knew.... just totally knew that it was going to be that night.
Oh how different this is. I've been having BH for at least a couple of weeks. Seems to be mostly at night, but daytime too. My back hurts. I've got some cervix twinges. Last night around 4 I woke up convinced that my water had broken. Low and behold I was just sweating like a pig because DH had the humidifier on and the door closed (plus having BH contrax). I really thought that might have been it. sigh.
What have your experiences been with early labor pains?
