So at 1am I woke up to painful contractions that would start almost simultaneously in my front and back and then end up all over my bump. I didn’t time the first few but did after that. Unfortunately they didn’t get regular - they were about 45 seconds long and 10 mins apart but I’ve never experienced this with my other labours - I’ve actually never had a spontaneous labour. They ended up lasting 6 hours but did start petering off towards the end which was a relief because I needed some sleep. Woke up and had the most random upset tummy so hoping it’s a clear out!! I’ve been reading a lot on prodromal/latent labour and think it fits somewhere in that category. Did you experience this before?! When did you go into labour?
