I am sure this question is asked alot, but I have not been on here in a while. I have been having contractions since Thursday night, with severe back pain. Yes, they are the real thing. The doctor has monitored me twice and said they are the real thing. Anyone have any advise on what I can do to intensify and speed them up. I am miserable and feel like someone has beat me up. I have tried walking, hot baths, climbing stairs, etc. etc. Any suggestions, because I am about to rip my husbands head off. :)
Thank you so much

Do you know if your baby is posterior, maybe? Or asynclitic? If baby isn't in the "most favorable" position mom can have a rockier & slower start. The contractions you're having would be working to get baby to be in a better position.
And Prodromal Labor, a slow-going early labor, can also be a lot of work for many moms. It is not for nothing!
Trust in the process and have faith that when it's really time you'll know (~your baby will be in your arms, not your belly!)
;-) Best wishes!!!
