Two days in a row, I've been contracting with pattern. The night before I was at 4-6 minutes per contraction, and last night- after walking a considerable amount (well over an hour) they were up to 2-3 minutes apart, to the point I had to have my husband come pick me up, because it hurt too much to walk anymore. (I had been walking around the block over and over)
We are homebirthing, so there was no need to rush off to a hospital. I get in the house and decide to lay down in a comfortable position and the contractions are still cominge every 2-3 minutes for a good hour with no need to push at all. I'm thinking at this point delivery will come during the middle of the night.
Suddenly, everything slows down- my contactions come 5-8 minutes apart, then only once every 10 minutes which is where they are now. Some hurt so bad they woke me when I slept- others were weak. Ahhhh whats going on!?!?
PS. This is our 7th child.
