(I'm 38 weeks 5 days pregnant, 1st baby) So beginning yesterday at about 1pm, I started getting contractions at first completely irregular, but more than I'd ever had before in one day, by 10 pm they had progressed to being regular, about 7-9 minutes apart and lasting almost a minute. I started getting super excited thinking I was finally going into labor! All night they continued on, some contractions not painful, some bad enough to wake me up from my deep sleep, I got about 3 hours sleep last night because I couldn't sleep through most of them. Walking gave me really bad back labor, and put the contractions to coming every 1-4 minutes apart. By 8 am they were still going strong, not changing in time though. I had had about 8 BM during this time and at 2 am lost my whole mucus plug all at once, plus the upset stomach that hit me. I was sooo sure I had gone into early labor. BUT now I took a nap at 1:30 woke up a half hour ago, and no contractions now. Or at least if I am having contractions I can't tell when they are beginning or ending. I don't understand, what happened over the last 14 hours? My BH were NEVER like this, I never ever felt them unless I was pushing on my belly than I would notice it tightening... Was this false labor that was so much like real labor... UGH I'm so frustrated now! Has anyone else gone through this?
