I've been having contractions for about a week and a half now, but they've pretty much been inconsistent as far as intensity/duration, so I know it's been the prodromal labor.

So today I've had the prelabor backache. The backache has progressed to a steady backache with pressure and a feeling of gassiness/constipation while contractions have begun at 10 minutes apart (for the last couple of hours). I'm feeling chronic pain all in my back and stomach and moving actually makes it worse- same labor stuff as my first child, this being my fourth.

I REALLY think this is it. DH is at a fire meeting right now and the thought of having to put my 3 children to bed by myself with my body feeling so icky is making me want to cry, but I really urged DH to go because if it turns out to be nothing he missed a meeting he was suppose to lead! I know if I said stay home he would have, but...

Please send labor vibes! Emotionally I can't take this not being it!
