The weirdest thing happened to me two nights ago. Starting around 10PM I realized I was having pretty regular BH contrax, about 25 mins apart. Went to bed about a half hour later and they increased to every 20 mins. Over the course of 3 or 4 hours they increased to every 10 mins with a small contrax in between at 5 mins. I noticed that whenever I got up and walked around they would stop and then when they started up again, they were 5 mins closer than before. By 2 to 3 AM they were about a minute long and my entire abdomen was contracting - I could feel my cervix stretching and my back would ache. Then, at 4AM - they stopped. I had a little weak, disorganized one, and then nothing. A few disorganized ones the next morning and.. NOTHING! I was so frustrated. This is exactly how Livvie's birth started and I was holding her in my arms at 11AM. I have no idea why they would get so intense and go on for 5 to 6 HOURS but not turn into anything. Anyone else have this experience?? I guess one clue that it wasn't the real thing was that they stopped when I was walking around, but then I didn't expect that they would start up again even closer together than before! Weird. And I'm only 37 weeks, so I know I shouldn't get my hopes up. But still....
