Whats wrong with my body?


So for the last few nights now I have been woken up with various contractions and pain, leading me to think I might actually be in labour as it started like that for my DS! They are definitely getting more intense and painful with each passing night which I guess is a good thing?
But I dont understand why that as soon as morning comes, it all stops! Its really upsetting me as I am starting to think something is wrong with my body.

During the day I will get tightenings but I dont start getting pains until the evening time and then once I am in bed and fall asleep, the pains start a few hours later!

Does anyone else experience this? I am feeling really down today and fed up

After my one false start (which I already told you about) I haven't had any more nights like you were describing, BUT I can definitely sympathize with the "whats wrong with my body" feeling. I am starting to think I am doing something wrong! I was going to post a similar thread today...

It doesn't help that my mom keeps telling me that with each of hers she had to do something to kick start labor--weird squats timed with BH, castor oil, thinking the right thoughts...yadda yadda. Makes me feel like I have to figure out what my "trick" is, and I just don't know. Its getting stressful!

I know what you mean. I don't think I've has as many false starts as you, but I was starting to get lots of tightenings and bits of cramping yesterday, but it all stopped overnight. My mum had both me and my sister about 1 week early so was convinced I'd be early too.

Every time she asks if there's any news, it's almost like she's disappointed with me for not doing it right! I've tried telling her that no-one is more keen to meet the baby than me and hubby.

For a week now this has been happening to me. During the day I have braxton hicks some hurt some don't! But when it comes to the night I'm moaning in my sleep, dreaming about the pain, and being woken by the pain! But then nothing!
I'm 37weeks, I hope this is my body doing some good preparing x

I dont mind the not sleeping, well I can actually doze through the pain even though at times last night it really was very intense, and of course I am more relaxed at night, like you I have a LO to look after in the day and he keeps me feeling less than relaxed! But why haven't I just gone into labour? I dont get it x

I am starting to get the "haven't you had baby yet" text messages and stuff now which really does wind me up, its not my fault - I really do want the baby to be here!
If it is because I am more relaxed at night I have no chance of having the baby in the daytime as I have a 20 month old son to run after!

I feel exactly the same way baby is 4/5ths, not engaged and I am booked in for a sweep on Monday; if that doesn't work then we will be starting eviction by induction. I'm getting emails and texts every day now asking where baby is!! I'm trying everything!!!! I have been having strong Braxton Hicks but leads to nothing .. nada!!!!

I dont want to get to Monday feeling like this EVERY bloody morning, its so upsetting, I am so tired and fed up now and no one seems to understand how bad I feel, my DH doesn't get it at all he just keeps saying soon be over, yes but in the meantime I wake up every day and have a cry because I am so bloody sore

I was due on the 11th .. same as you? I know exactly how you feel. I saw the MW on Weds and I asked outright for the next step; she said that they were unable to sweep until 5 days due to guidelines and induction after 12 I wake up in the middle of the night (every night) about 3-4 times and I'm always disappointed, I can't roll over easily, in fact I feel like a stranded whale. I feel like I'm doing/done something wrong because she won't come out, I've not even dropped all that much. I felt so down when she examined my stomach, I heard the words "not engaged yet but nearly" and my heart sunk .. have they given you a date for anything yet???
