I started having contractions this morning starting around 5am and that changed into a backache and crampiness for most of the day. I started having light contractions around 4:30 and they're coming every 2-4 minutes and lasting about 30 seconds. I'm hoping this is it but I've been fooled before, we shall see. I talked to my midwife and she said to call back at 8pm for a status update, she thinks after the sun goes down that it'll pick up.

My body seems to be taking a break. There's a big bubble of forewaters in front of the baby's head and that seems to be really cushioning the contractions, so I think if the baby can move down a bit and get some of that water out of the way it'll help. Or my water will break

How exciting! I hope things pick up for you and your labor kicks in soon! I've been having "labor" pretty much every night since Sunday (tonight's the first night actually that I haven't had contractions every few minutes), but it keeps stopping... I hope yours isn't like mine!

They stopped

Next time I won't vacuum the living room while having them because the baby apparently changed their mind. I should know better by now but I was hoping since they were consistent enough, maybe this weekend.
