With my first pregnancy, I had some nasty contractions exactly 2 weeks before she was born. Spent 2 weeks dilated and then boom, bad back labor and my water sprung a leak. THIS time, I've been having contractions for weeks, and the last few days have been especially brutal to the point where they do make me limp. Last night they went for 4-5 hours but never got worse and finally quit when I finally got anxious enough to start timing. I HATE THIS!!! My first was also a week and a half early so my doctor was 90% sure that this one would be early too - well, nope.

Did anyone else have these issues with the ongoing contractions, and what finally happened? I'm so confused with this one that I'm starting to get those "first pregnancy jitters" about not knowing when to go to the hospital, and I've been through this before!

I've been having contractions for about 3 weeks and I've been dilating for a week now, it's only the past few days that have been getting bad. It's just irritating that they get bad enough to start thinking about the hospital and then quit!

My sister went through this with her first pregnancy. She had real contractions for about a week, and then finally started dilating enough where she was able to go to the hospital and had the baby, but like I said, she was like that for a week! Hope that helps a little!
