Wondering if this may be it for me too...

This is only my 2nd natural labor and I've been prodromal for so long now that maybe I'm discrediting it... LOL.

It's mild compared to what I woke up with when my DD made her entrance... But it's in my back... A sharp "pain" right around my SI joints in my low back, radiating in through my hips and round ligament muscles and down in through my pelvis. Some are very strong in the back with less uterine tightening and some are less strong in my back but really tight up front... It's like a wave though, not a hard and fast hit and release like a BH. It's building and then gets to a peak (in which I'm feeling either ALOT of pressure in my back or ALOT of tighenting in my uterus) and then releasing very slowly.

I've got 8-10 ish min apart, 30-45 seconds in duration but some are longer, more intense than others. DEF feeling it in my lower back and hips though.

I'm not quick to wake my DH or call my MW... It's been about an hour, maybe 1.5hours... DH works nights, just went to bed at 4pm (up since 11pm last night). I'm half expecting this to fizzle out because I've been prodromal for so long. Baby has had hiccups once and is wiggling a little bit but no grand movements... Just little wiggles and shifts and a few small kicks.

Bella's labor was such hard and fast hit that I KNEW... This one, with all the prodromal stuff, I'm sitting here going and wondering...

I don't think I could lay down though... My back is sore and tight sitting on my birth ball... I can't imagine laying down...
