For past few days had pains lower back - i keep getting contractions which are regular -pretty much through the night. Then they stop.
Last night i thought this has got to be it BUT yet again they've stopped. My whole body feels achey n my back is agony. Should i call hospital for advice?
This is my third preg so i do know what contractions and labour pains feel like - and this does feel like them - But because they keep stopping im so confused now and worryed that when its real thing ill probably ignore it and be too late to get to hospital or something. Aaaaah! Just so want this to start now!
I so know how you feel. I've been having contractions since last Monday and they mainly come at night time so sleep is missing big time! Then by morning they've stopped!!!
Even though I've been pregnant before, I had to have a c section so I never got to this stage, I always thought you had contractions, went into labour and had baby!!! Obviously not as straight forward but I didn't think you could have all these contractions which can sometimes be blooming painful weeks beforehand. If only I knew... I'd still be here struggling through lol!
Hugs to you and Ravelyn that something happens soon.
I've had a couple of regular painful tightenings (which also to me feels like labour pain 2nd baby.) But no every day ust now and again. MW says it's normal, the only thing I can guess is that perhaps cos second + babies we feel the braxton hicks more like after the more babies you have the more painful the after pains (apparently.) I'm just guessing maybe it's a similar thing with braxton hicks, the more babies you have the more painful and regular they can be. Just goes to show doesn't it, no two preg the same etc etc.
I guess if every night cld be slow labour, but I guess just see how thing go, if concerned go down to the labour ward.
I had that for a few days before I actually gave birth. Went to the hospital at 5.30am on the day I had her and as soon as I got there they practically stopped so I got sent home! I suppose there's not harm in going to the hospital and having an internal to see how things are going. (I was 3cm when I got sent home btw) x
they say even if u have contractions and they stop when they start again they start from where they last left off so everytime they stop ur not goin back to the begining again u could b in slow labour with a bit of respite in between hopefully they get better hun
