  • Yes they can start and stop! Not uncommon at all actually. It could be that your were having contractions and your body was trying to put the baby in the best position possible for birth, (head facing down twards your tailbone, chin tucked) Try to get alot of rest and relax as much as possible, it can bve hard I know, but not being relaxed can also stop contractions, kind of the fight or flight response, if your mind cant relax it is hard to process the hormones that are needed to start them up again. Good luck, it wont be to much longer from what it sounds.
