OK so i have been having contractions for about 30 something hours. I'm almost 39 weeks and going a little nuts. they havent stopped and some are painful and some aren't. i got examined today and no dilation. so does that mean its not going to happen soon? advice please!!!!! this is number 2 for me but very differnt from the first.

Its probably just braxton hicks...they can be just as painful, my doctor tole me they were that and i was past my due date!! How close together are they? If you feel unsure, call your doctor, thats what theyre there for!! Dont ever be afraid to ask your dr questions!! Also, if its your 2nd child it can be early labor because you are very close to the end. Even though you had no dialation, it can progress very fast, specially if its not your first pregnancy!!! Good luck and i wish you a very healthy baby!!

Don't worry too much, they're probably BH ctx or early labor. Early labor can go on for quite a while, mine did for three weeks before he arrived four days late!
