This is only my second post, but I thought I'd just say...I've been having prelabor stuff happening for weeks now...like a lot of others here. Lost my plug 2 weeks ago, have had the cervical stabbing pain, the contractions, etc. It seems like every time they come on, they don't go anywhere - until yesterday.
Yesterday, I started with some mild contractions at about 3pm, and they continued to gain power throughout the night. At 3:30am I woke up, unable to sleep through the vice around my hips. My husband and I started timing. They were about 5 minutes apart, 2 minutes each, but by 6am they were gone, and we both went back to sleep.
Now, dh has gone to work (I'm on leave...just waiting, which is good - my job is too stressful and demanding to really be 100% right now, which is what is expected of me), and the vice is back.
I'm so tired of this! Anyone else as frustrated as me??
Anyway, thanks for listening...I really needed that!
