I didn't really have BH contractions with the other two children so these are all new to me. A couple nights now I've thought labor was coming, the contractions were so intense and frequent. . .I get excited, then they go away--ugh!! I too know that my body is preparing, but I just keep getting my hopes up and then prepare for the letdown. I guess part of it for me is that DD came at 37 weeks and DS came right at 38 weeks and now I am going to be 39 weeks on Tuesday and still no babe. Waiting sucks!!
