Had a glass of wine and went to bed. I don't know how many times I woke during the night with contractions (real, painful), but it was lots. They seem to be lasting 40-50 seconds but I'm not that good at counting half-asleep and writhing in pain
I'm up now and just started timing them. If things don't pick up on their own, we'll try castor oil, but I'm pretty sure that, now that I'm awake, things will get going. I had been having them every 5-6 minutes before going to bed, but then DH and I had a HUGE misunderstanding and everything stopped. It's all fine now and I'm pretty amazed at my body's ability to adjust to changing circumstances.
Off to eat and drink.
