So yesterday I went [or at least thought] into labor -- contractions were coming at 15 minute intervals all day, and steadily progressing into the night. Around 12am they were 7 minutes apart, getting really painful, and closer together. At around 3am I was like "okay, I'm going to really time these the next half hour and than call my midwife.."

And I fell asleep and woke up only in between contractions that were growing apart! Now I have had a few irregulars this morning, and I'm crampy and feeling sick but nothing regular.

Is this just a sluggish labor, or was that all just a false alarm? I'm so pooped

Isn't that the worst?????
I had that last Thurs I am sorry to say, and not much since then (I am 40 +2). To give you hope though, I had an experience similar to what you described when I had dd, and had her the very next day. Your cervix probably dialated a bit, but perhaps you just didn't have the hormone levels (YET) to sustain it. Hang in there.

Can't tell you how many times this has happened to me! I've been waiting for it to happen one more time because my doctor says since I'm to a four I will not get sent home even if things slow down. Of course the one time it happened this week my husband was off to the airport to send our son off to California and by the time he got back things had slowed down! I bet you dilated though!!

I'm hoping I dilated! I was at 2 and 85% effaced before that. WE WILL SEE!
