Hi, I'm at my wits end really. I went into early labour about 3:00am on Sunday (nearly 40 hours ago). I went straight into cramps in the back, tummy every 3 minutes, quite painful so went to labour and delivery and confirmed I was in early stages. Told to go home thank god and wait it out. Lost my plug, a lot of it, still losing little bits now. Anyway I've had contraction now getting stronger as the days go by but not getting closer. They are just random 8 minutes for a few hours, then go to 6 minutes for an hour (just to tease me some at 5), then go to 14 minutes, then back to regular 8 etc!!! The pain is excruciating in the contractions, so I'm sure they aren't BH, and needless to say I haven't had any sleep in 48 hours because they come regardless. The pain is now also in my hips as well as my tummy and back and this is by far the most painful part (the hips). They come more regularly when I sit down and a warm bath and a walk slowed them back down. My husband and I are so confused as to what' going on and when we might finally see our baby. L and D don't want me back in until I'm regular 5 minutes. AHHHHHH Has anyone heard of or had a similar labour to mine? When can I finally expect things to happen do you think?
