So about 4:30, I started getting a lot of BH. As in, 11 an hour. Each about 5 minutes apart. A lot of pressure. I had some of the more unpleasant symptoms earlier today and I've been nesting insanely.<br><br>
However, they seem to be cooling down. Baby's head is a lot lower I can feel without trying to. So I think this is just some prodromal stuff. Who knows? It could be weeks. But I figured I'd let y'all know that I'm contracting and such.

Ooo! Keep us updated! I hate prodromal labor! I've had it in all of my pregnancies. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:

Did you have lots of prodromal labor with your other 3? I've had two major bouts of contractions now, too, along with pressure & other symptoms. They were every 3 minutes for about 90 minutes each time & I would definitely be wondering what's up but this happened the last several weeks of my other pregnancies too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> It's pretty freaking annoying to me. But anyway, I hope your labor begins exactly when you want it to , either soon or in weeks! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

So everything stopped. I must admit I'm disappointed. I didn't push it, but I did eat spicy Mexican food, walked for over an hour, drank my RRL tea, and EPO and it all stopped, so it's not meant to be right now.<br><br>
It's kinda embarrassing that the first thing I thought of when they got regular was "Now I won't have a Capricorn!". How sad is that? I think I might die if I'm pregnant another month, but I think my mind is set on another one!

No, I didn't. The only natural birth I have to compare it with is dd#1. I started labor with her at 9pm the day before her due date. Water broke ~5am, mucous plug came an hour later (weird?), had her around 10pm after 3 hours pushing.<br><br>
What I had last night was just like the first 8 hours of labor with her, though. That's one of the reasons I thought it was the real thing.<br><br>
My other two were induced before my due date. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: But I didn't have anything like this with them.

Ah, bummer. I suffer with extreme prodromal labor for weeks&weeks&weeks with all my pregnancies. I tell myself every time that there's no reason to think that this baby's gonna come ONE day before it's due date, but the prodromal stuff can be SO convincing! So then I start questioning if I can *possibly* keep all this up for an entire 3, 4, 5 more weeks & I think "no way!". But then I do.<br><br>
I am SO right there with you thinking that if I'm pg another month I will DIE. <insert very dramatic exhaling & moaning here>

It started again tonight! They are tapering off again. Jeez! I had some when I was at the store that were so hard, I would cry in pain. Some bad cervical pains, back pain, crampiness, and strong ctx. Make up your mind, kid! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Except for the back pain, I have all those same symptoms! We must be due at the same time! LOL Today was the worst cervical pain, ouch! It felt like my kid is a werewolf trying to claw its way out.

The last thing my mom remembers before I was born (in the horrible days of twilight sleep) was saying, "who gave him a hammer and chisel?"<br><br>
Think she might have been having cervical pain? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
Sounds like we may have more babies here soon!<br><br>
