Hey everyone I'm 35wks and I have been having contractions for 4 days now they are still about 30-45 minutes apart and last about 30 seconds and they aren't changing time wise but now the pain is going into my sides and lower back and pelvis. Is this normal to be going on this long and not change?

  • Well I was induced with my daughter at 38wks and never felt any kind of little contractions or anything like that so I just don't know if its just normal for things to progress this way

    Best of luck to you & baby.

  • I had that too.
    My OB told me they were just practice contractions.

  • it may be false labor... have you called your doc/midwife yet? you may want to do that and ask about it.
