I've had 3 full term births -- had 1+ hours of hard contractions every 2-4 minutes apart nearly every day for the last 2-3 months, and leading up to 2-3 hours of labor every day for the last month. Always thought "Is THIS is???" And then, with each of those pregnancies, when something finally changes (my water broke), BBBBBAAAAAAMMMM !!! I had the baby.
#1 -- Prodromal for weeks, then
dead asleep, ROM, 45 minutes later a baby in my hands
#2 -- Prodromal for weeks, then
ROM, 2 hours of almost nothing
then 15 minutes of labor and a baby in my hands!
#3 -- Prodromal for weeks, then
3 hours of horrid contractions with baby posterior
(? because of bedrest the last 3 months of pregnancy)
and cervix not dilating at all
pulled my own cervix forward and held it through 3 contractions
20 minutes later, a baby in my hands
I hope your prodromal labor rewards you with equally efficient births.
