Hi all! Love reading your support; it's made me tear up! Not sure what is going on now. Midwife convinced me to get some sleep and contractions stopped. Then I woke up again because of extreme itching and thought maybe my water was breaking (it wasn't). Then nothing. Now wide awake and contractions starting again. I don't want to wake anyone since I'm comfortable still, but feeling very embarrassed/disappointed/depressed that this might be a false alarm. I never got my massage yesterday that I thought would help stimulate labor... because I thought I was in labor. Going to try for a long walk about 6 am with DH. Thanks so much for your support and love, Mamas. Hopefully this will get serious again soon and I'll keep you posted through BBM.

Mary, proud to be a mama to Andrew (9/14/10) and Caroline (7/27/13) and wife to Matt.

Best of luck Crafty! I hope things pick up soon and you have a wonderful birth! Try to get some rest before things get too tough. My midwives say when people are in early labor they tell them to go to sleep. You need the rest and strength for the rest of labor!
