Contractions have stopped what is the best thing to do?

Okay so this is has never happened to me before this is baby number 3 and I was for sure I was starting labor last night. I had contractions strong ones that made my face cringe every 4 mins lasting about 30-40 sec. from 12am to 7:30 am and they just stoped what should I do to get them going again and why would the stop?

  • doctors will call it "false labor" and midwives call it "practice labor" -- i say, you were having real contractions, if they were strong and stayed constant for that long of time...but, for some reason it stopped. have no idea why... same thing happened to me awhile back. i'll be 41 weeks on Sunday, still waiting for the real deal!
