I hope it's the real thing for you, Mrs.Oz!
The last two nights I really thought labor might be starting. The first night I had intense crampy and elly tightening contractions every 12-13 minutes for 3 hours+ (then a couple of hours into the night, when I woke up I would notice I was stilll having them, but glad I could get some sleep.) Well, by the time I woke up, they were gone.
Last night, I had intense crampy contractions, not at all like BH contractions, every 5 minutes for an hour, then they became irregular but still hopeful for another hour, and then very irregular. Wah! Last night I even had to explain to my 4 yr old what a contraction is, so he wouldn't jump on me or make annoying loud sounds while I was having one. Right at about the first hour, I told him he may even get to go to Grandma's tonight.
Oh well, I hope these contractions are doing something!
