so ive had pains today, from about 10am following a sweep about 5-10minutes apart, they haven't eased up at all, im loosing bits of plug, and i really think things might be beginning. what im wondering is, should i try and get some sleep tonight? The pains aren't unbearable yet, but im thinking i might not be able to sleep even if i tried. my mum suggested i tried to go to sleep tonight so I have enough energy for what could potentially be a long process, but im worried if I do manage to drift off labour might significantly slow or stall all together.... Thoughts?
