    Sorry for another "am I in Labor?" thread - there needs to be a button on us that lights up or makes noise when we are, to take the guesswork out of it! :)

    So all day yesterday and thru the night last night, had a massive backache and couldn't get comfortable. Lost my plug (or had a show? get the two confused) this morning when I got up - clear, mucus-y stuff, with bits of fresh and dried blood mixed in. Sorry to be so graphic.

    Went over to my OB's for a scheduled appt and was told I am 1-2 cm dialated (was 1 cm at my appt last week) and 50% effaced (was not at all effaced last week).

    So, I've been getting crampy period-like pains and contractions - different from BH as they are at the bottom of my bump and around my back/down into my bum (even though that sounds weird).

    This morning they were about 15 seconds each and 2-3 mins apart.
    For the last hour or so, they've been 30-40 seconds each and anywhere from 4-6 mins apart.

    If she is teasing me and this is a false alarm, she will have to get spoken to when she finally makes her way out!!

    Thoughts ladies? Sorry this is so long - no other friends have kids, so I have no one IRL to turn to....
    Thank you for any insight you can offer!!!!
