    I am feeling miserable!

    For past week i,v had pains lower back - i keep getting contractions which are regular -pretty much through the night. they start about 7pm, wake me up with every one once im in bed then they just stop about 3am.:wacko:so sleep is missing big time! im soooo tied...

    Last night i thought this has got to be it BUT yet again they've stopped. My whole body feels achey now....

    This is my 4th preg so i do know what contractions and labour pains feel like - and this does feel like the start of them - But because they keep stopping im so confused....
    with my last LO i had this then woke at 2am for a wee had a bloody show then then came more intence instantly and soooo painfull, so this is all very strange to me..... im 2/5 engaged and 2cmD and i know this must just be faulse labour but i just want a few more weeks sleep before LO arrives :nope:
    will this go on for weeks or days ? has anyone else experiance this ??

    i keep getting this. this is my first but all night long i get contractions with lower back pains. i wakes me up all through the night and is really annoying because i keep thinking ooh this must be it but nope :(

    ive heard a few women have had this before going into labour but i wish it would just happen already lol. fingers crossed it wont be too long for you now x

    Iv also just been walking round town and it started again but now in sitting relaxing its stopped....

    This is baby no 3 for me and I've been having this too, can tell the difference between braxton hicks and contractions because I've had both and they're different!! It's very strange!
