Last night I felt some mild cramps--period like. Then when I woke up this morning, I had contractions ranging from 7 min apart to 15 min apart for a couple hours. THEN everything stopped. Nothing for the rest of the day. I think my body is teasing me.

that's going on over here, too. for a while. i've had numerous nights where things seem to be picking up only to completely peter out. i've decided that just by virtue of murphy's law (i've been having lots of ctx since about week 33 and i'm back to terrible nausea and vomiting) that of my friends who are due around the same time i am (one four days later, one ten days later, etc.) that i'll be the last one to go!

ah well! what can you do? i hope for your sake that it's sooner rather than later!

Yep.

Just wait till it goes on for 12 hours and you call your mom to get your kids and drag your doula out in the middle of the night (and you live 45 minutes away from both of them!). :
