I woke up about 4am Friday night/Saturday morning and was so excited because I thought I was finally in labor! My stomach was tight and really painful (more than it had been before)...then I heard the gurgle.... Seems as if I had just eaten too many chips and salsa for the 4th of July and had indigestion!<br><br>
Anyone else have any false labor stories?

Around 25 weeks I would have bouts of IBS, which gave me timable contractions that increased in intensity and I would be all ready to call my MW and go to the hospital until I pooped.<br><br>
I really hope that doesn't happen around my due date. I also hope that I can tell the difference between intestinal contractions and uterine contractions! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I had a midwife appointment on Wednesday and when she checked me she told me that she was almost positive that I wouldn't make it until Saturday. Which was good news because I was sure that nothing had progressed. Anyway, so Wednesday night I went on a pretty intense power walk with some family and towards the end I started having some pain accompanying my contractions. (I squatted through each contraction, and they were about 8 minutes apart) Anyway, on the ride home, which is about 10 minutes, I had two intense contractions that were accompanied by even more pain.. I'm assuming because I was sitting. For the next three hours I had these intense contractions... they would start out as my whole belly tightening and then once it was super tight, my abdomen would start aching like menstrual cramps, then once that was intense, it would move around to my back and that would start up... all of this would happen in the minute to minute and a half that the contraction would last. From start of one contraction to start of the next, it was averaging about 3 1/2 minutes. I was SURE I was in labor! As soon as my brother-in-law and sister-in-law came out to the living room, they petered out. (They are staying with us while visiting) I was so bummed I could barely stand it! The whole time they were going on I was wondering, could this really be it? This could really be it!!! I even went to wake up my husband to tell him that I thought he should find someone to cover his shift in the morning... thank goodness he wanted to wait! Ugh! It was so aggravating!!! With my son I had absolutely NO false labor, so this is so upsetting to me! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">
