Just had to vent for a second! i'm 38 weeks and i have been having about a week now of every night staying up with contractions. they are not really intense, sometimes i have to breath through them a bit but nothing too bad, just really annoying and i cant sleep through them.

my cervix isnt changing much, i have been losing mucus, but nothing to write home about.

ugh, i'm just tired and anxious right now, i dont really need advice about getting them to stop, i really dont feel like drinking wine or anything i just nap as much as i can during the day.

i just had to get this out and kinda hoping i'm not alone in my misery!
thanks

You are definitely not alone. I have been having the same thing for over a week now. Every night I go to bed and think this is the night but then I wake up and I'm still pregnant! Soon, we'll be holding our little ones in our arms. For me it just can't be soon enough.

Yep--me too. Every night for a week and a half I've gone to sleep with my gut telling me "tonight's the night!" and every morning I wake up still pregnant! I feel like the boy who cried wolf and definitely have lost faith in listening to my body which is soooo disheartening!
