Since about 1am I've been having bh contractions and crampy feelings. I've also started to lose more of my mucus plug. I'm hoping this means thing will start soon. Anyone else feel like this? Maybe a full moon-baby for me? My 40 wk appt is on Friday--so if I don't have the baby by tomorrow at least maybe I'll find out that these contractions have done some good.

No BH, but yes. Although I have no idea if I've lost my plug (peices came last week, but not a lot), and they stopped when I sat down to time them.

I had more BH than usual this evening while grocery shopping, and some crampiness this afternoon. But I am definitely not in labor, nor do I expect to be any time soon.

I've been having this for THREE days now, but just worse today. I mean, I think, I don't even know for sure I am having trouble describing this pain. I even took a nap and they (etiher didn't stop, but I was sleeping so I didn't know) or came back as soon as I woke up. They don't FEEL like contractions though. I have no freakin' clue this stuff is all so new to me. I'm trying not to get my hopes up, but it's kind of hard!

I hope it goes well for you gals... at least 2 weeks before I was induced with my daughter I was CONSTANTLY contracting w/BH. I don't think this is the norm, though. Good luck!

Well, I'm pretty sure that even if this was the beginning of *very* early labor, I've probably jinxed myself out of it...

See, my DH and I have one car and live in a small town about 20 minutes outside of the city where DH works and my mw's birth center is. Last night, I was up every hour on the dot with strong BH and period-like cramps... I had planned on spending the day at home just resting, but when DH was getting ready for work, I was paranoid about staying and not having a car. So I drove him to work and came over to my parent's house, just in case. I'm still having pretty regular BH, but less crampy feelings...

Usually, I only have noticeable BH at night, but now that we've started epo, pumping, and *other* stimulation, this is the first time anything has lasted beyond bedtime...

I'm hoping this means my body is at least getting ready! Mw and I would love to meet these babies by next week...
