    Well they do get stronger in the weeks leading up to labour... Stabbing vaginal/cervical pains is your cervix starting to soften and eventually efface from the pressure and weight of the baby/uterus... Again, can take weeks.

    Ive been having severe cervical/vaginal pains, menstrual pains, on and off lower back pains, pelvic pain, for the past 3 weeks and nothing has happened so far... lol.. and I doubt anything is about to happen.

    Hope something happens for you soon though.

    I suppose if it keeps going for awhile you could call the hospital, although BH can go on for several hours and then stop... I dunno, lol depends on how bad and how long they last.

    They sound quite long to me. The mini guideline seems to be 5/1/1 - 5mins apart, 1 min long for an hour straight. I was having them last night 5-7 mins apart, 1-2 mins long but never managed to keep the exact pattern for an hour :( Once I went to bed they eased off.

    I look at it this way - if its not the real deal, at least you're building up your pain threshold and maybe when you do go, you might get through the second stage a bit quicker :) Try to see them as a good thing!!
