Started with irregular contraction last night about 9pm
Then lost mucus plug
Then contractions sped upto 4 minutes apart, were about 50 seconds long and were F&!*$(%! painful!
Called hospital about 12:30 and told to get a bath, got a bath, it didn't help
Called back about 3:30 (still with regular contractions) and told to wait and see if the pattern holds and if I progress, was told to take some pain killers.
In agony till about 7 in the morning, but put off calling the hospital back because I had been ignored the first two times...
Now the contractions are losing their regularity and are coming average 7 - 9 minutes apart.
Called the hospital just now and they said it is possible I was in false labour last night. I was soooo not false labour, contractions were very strong radiating from my back to the front of my abdomen and were tightening all if my belly. They told me I have to wait even longer before I go in.
Why is this happening!? I don't think I can do another night like last night
Sounds like my night I had really bad back ache a pains dont the bottom of my bump I felt awful, couldnt lie down. Belly was so hard it was painful! Was cleaning.the bathroom at 5am! Then 7am everything stopped! Grrrrr
Im feeling absolutely knackered, not slept a wink and still getting irregular painful contractions now. Been told get get another bath and more painkillers! How many baths do I have to have before they will see me?!
I cant take much more of this pain, but the MW on the phone said it sounds as if Im not progressing, so there is no point being examined. I don't care if when I get there, they tell me I'm not dilated at all, at least then I know!
I know first labours take a long time, I'm not expecting my baby here in the next hour, would just like some professional advice. Losing faith
Hi hun I was the same yesterday I started getting pains at 12 in the afternoon, they got more and more intense round my back and stomach I felt like crap just wanted to sleep but couldnt those pains lasted right up until 11pm last night at certain points i was crying with the pains and you could see my bum change shape and contract!! But Now i have nothing I get the odd dull menstral cramp but that's about it!!
i've already had 3 of false labors. but to be honest i'd rather stay at home till contractions are regular and i'm sure that something is going on rather than go to the hospital and feeling like a person abducted by aliens with fingers up by vayjay and monitors hooked all over.
