False Labor Stinks!
 
Today is my due date!
I was up for 3 hours last night with 1 minute long contractions every 5 minutes. Just about the time I was ready to wake DH up, they started getting further and further apart until they stopped altogether. GRRRRR! I woke up this morning and noticed that I lost my mucous plug, so I guess some good came of it, and I am having quite a few contractions today, but they're not going anywhere.

Well, then, maybe this baby WILL come on his or her due date!!! I am SOOO ready to meet this baby!!!
This is the first experience I've ever had with the false labor. With all my other babies, I had occasional Braxton hicks if I stood up to fast or something. Then when labor actually started, it was really obvious. This time.... not so much.

It pisses me off hard core! I thought for sure we were having a baby the other night and then nothing! :banghead:

just think, maybe the more ctx you have now, the less there will be during real labor? o.O

I have been doing that most nights for almost 3 weeks. I even have contractions that wake me up, keep me up for an hour or two, then stop. It stinks. I am due in 4 days. Third babies on up can make for a notoriously long first stage I am told. This is my 6th and he is taking his sweet time to be sure.

My first I never had traditional consistent contractions. They alternated from min 1 to the last. I was waiting to the 5-1-1 and when I finally gave in and called them (i had lost the muscus plug though it didn't dawn on me at the time I just saw blood) I was alternating between 5 minute between 1 minute long and 3 minutes between 1m+ long for a while. I think it's good, it kept me home longer maybe but frustrating. They were consistent in there own way though :)
