    Thursday night at 39+1 I started contracting at 11pm. These went on all night and stopped at 7am. I then had intermittent contractions all day Friday.

    Friday night at 10pm I had my show (brown and pink and did a little happy dance in the bathroom). At 10.10pm I had a contraction, another at 10.20pm then nothing!

    Saturday I had small period pain on and off with a few tightenings. I lost more mucus plug (yellow and clear) that morning.

    Sunday was exactly the same.

    Monday I lost more plug that morning and had tightenings and my first proper BHs. I saw my MW at 4 and had a sweep. I'm 2cm with a soft cervix, but still 2cm long. After my sweep I had more tightenings and a few very mild contractions which stopped when I went to bed.

    This morning I had more mucus (yellow and clear), quite a bit more than usual, and a dull period pain coming and going, but barely noticeable.

    I feel like I'm enduring the latent phase from hell! 5 days already. I feel like a ticking time bomb and I'm stressed I've got 15 more days of this until induction. I cried all morning.

    Anyone else suffering a long latent phase?xx

    i classed mine as long but then i didnt have a 15 day wait.
    day1:waters started leaking and then i lost my plug, had contractions for 7 hours all over the place ranging from 10 mins apart to 2 mins.

    day2: still leaking, with no more contractions, was given a pessary, no progression, was kept in hospital on bed rest

    day3: was given another pessary in the morning with no progress they decided to induce me.

    day4: gave birth at 11:45 am to my beautiful DD via forceps, i was shattered!!!

    hopefully they wont let you wait very long if your waters decide to go like mine did! :hugs: baby will be here soon and you'll be wondering what all the fuss was about, i know thats no help to you now though xxxxx

    I swear this could be me writing this. I have had the same things for the same times etc. I keep getting 30 minute to 60 minute spells of good regular contractions then they stop. This happens a few times a day and has for almost a week.

    I definately feel you on this and I hope it ends soon for you.:hugs: I will be induced on Dec 1 as well if I make it that long.

    Well they finally stopped. They never got to the point of being painful. Felt like period cramps with tightening. I called the doc and he didnt' want me to come in unless they got stronger, however they ended up stopping.

    I'm on day 6 now
    I had more BHs last night, lost more plug and had the baby kicking my cervix for three hours. Then chronic back ache and period pain started at 3 until 7, coming on and off now just before 8am

    I'm so fed up of this

    Day 7 and it's my due date.

    Had period pain all night which stopped at 7am. A few BHs today but nothing much. Just spent two hours bouncing on the ball and he's booting me loads now.

    Not hopeful of anything happening for a good while yet

    I have been having the same things. Not really thinking of it as "labor" though. I just think it is your body preparing for labor. Although I have always had a lot of BH, I have been getting longer, harder ones that actually hurt and are sometimes 5-8 min apart for a hour or a little longer and then stop. Thought it was just the end of pregnancy norm.
