They are much more intense and my back feels achy and every few minutes I feel like I have to use the washroom. They are also much more low then before and I have to change position or close my eyes and sway through them.
I had my 2nd stretch and sweep today and I was only 1cm -3 station and 50% thinned. I lost my mucus plug this morning and just now noticed some blood when I went to the washroom, which I didn't have after the S&S.
Edited - They ramped up in intensity all night long. Had DH fill the birth pool and got some rest in there because there was no way I was lying down.Midwife came by at 9am...3cm. Since then they have started getting more intense and now I can barely walk during them..soon I hope!

She suggested taking a tylenol and gravol and getting some rest.
I timed them and they are 45sec-1.30 long and 1.45 to 3 minutes apart.
I have to sway through them or lean on the counter, i had a hot shower and it made my back feel better but I had a few contrax in the shower too. bleh.
Rest and eat and stay hydrated, you've got some good work ahead of you!
Sending you ELV!
