I woke up at about 3:30am with contractions, they were kinda irregular so I thought 'what the hey!" and decided to start walking the living room. After about 10 mins I thought "why I am I walking around the house when we have a treadmill?" XD and jumped on that for a little while. Sure enough my contractions got a little more regular and a little closer together and by now DH had woken up to go to work. So needless to say this morning I was super excited hoping this would be the day. I sent DH to work since we really can't afford for him to take the time off and I had an OB appt at 9:45am anyway, but at about 6am I called him to say they were getting worse and I wasn't sure if I could drive myself. He came home and I laid down for an hour trying to rest, unfortunately my contractions seemed to slow at this point. By 9:45 they'd gone from 4-5 mins apart lasting 45 secs to 10+ mins apart and being irregular again.
My OB's verdict was that it's BH - when he checked me I was 2cm and 25-50% effaced (which is better than my 1cm 0% effaced 2 weeks ago). He wanted me to push my Wed appt up to Mon so I did and told me I might have a little bleeding (I already was having a kinda mucusy discharge) and that if I did it probably wasn't my bloody show but that. I figured since his verdict was that they were BH they would go away complete but nope they haven't. This is exactly how it went with DS so I'm still holding on to hope that I will have this baby soon. With him I went into labor the day before (at 3am lol) and had him 8pm on the following day. So we shall see how this goes down.
Ooh! I hope your body is gearing up for the real deal!!
