Contractions all day 6-8 mins apart...

....they arent really painful, and I went to the Dr yesterday and was still only 50% effaced and a 'finger tip' dialated. What gives? I mean its been ALL DAY! I have been drinking water all day and still its happening.

You poor thing, well I guess we can both say the end is in sight right? And maybe I should stop timing them because a watch pot never boils and I am getting eager

Ooooo! How exciting! Rest while you can, mama!

With my second labor, I had mild contractions all day long from 3am to 8pm...then I went from 5 cm to 10 in one hour and he was born at 10 pm!

I've decided I'm not even gonna pay any more attention to them. I feel like every time I do, they stop

Re: Contractions all day 6-8 mins apart...

My friend who has taken a bunch of doula classes showed me how to do it without an internal check! When you have a contraction, the uterus gets hard like a rock...in early labor it will be just the top of the belly that is hard, and by 10 cm, the whole belly is hard, all the way to the bottom of the belly. When it is hard halfway (to your belly button), that is 5 cm. So you can estimate by feeling how much of your belly is hard during contractions. From what she told me, it is always right on!
