I have been having extremely steady BH contractions since 3-25 1-5 mins apart all day everyday. Then I lost my mucus plug yesterday 10am. I have not had a contraction since. Does anyone know if this is normal? Is it the calm before the storm?

DDDC - Sounds normal. Google prodromal labor - this is likely what you're experiencing. Can be tiring, but is truly a variation of normal. Things will kick into high gear at some point and your conractions will start to get longer, stronger, and closer together and you'll have a baby! Meanwhile, try to rest as much as you can, keep eating and drinking, maybe take a bath or drink a small glass of wine to help you relax.

Sounds normal to me too. My BH were 5 minutes apart for like 2 hours yesterday (until I got bored with paying attention and stopped writting it down LOL). I wouldn't have even timed them but it seemed a lot more than usual. I figure if it doesn't hurt- like a lot- and they don't get closer then it's just pretend.
