Had some irregular but unmistakable contractions last night but they seemed to be gone by the time I woke up in the middle of the night to pee. I'm 38 weeks 5 days.
Woke up this morning with no contractions, had sex with the husband and they immediately started back up and haven't gone away since (6 hours or so). I haven't gotten an accurate sense of their timing because we were out at the farmer's market and then doing some errands so I was distracted but they seem to be about 10-20 minutes apart, a minute long or so. Using my iPhone app now that I'm home to get a better sense of timing.
The annoying thing is that I had a very very mild cold last week, barely a day of sinus pain, but as happens EVERY time I get a cold, I've got a cough going that will last a week or two which is not making me look forward to labour. It's wreaking havoc on my already compromised bladder control.
But anyway, long story short, this miiiiiight be it! Eeep!
