  • That happend to me a few days ago- I had ALL the labor signs and contractions 7 mins apart- I was waiting to go to L&D until 4 mins apart- than out of nowhere it stopped!
    He hasnt moved much in 4 days, but I went in for the wellbeing test, and the doctor says he is a healthy happy little man!
    She also told me its not uncommen for labor to start, than just STOP out of nowhere- usually its not true labor, but "practice" labor-
    Anyway- I'm still waiting- and I am SOO done.

  • Did you eat some food...NOT a good idea when you are starting to go into labor. This stopped my contractions right away when I was starting to go into sucked!

  • if you are overdue it'd be a great idea to go to the doctors immediately to make sure baby is doing good

  • Sounds like baby may have been moving around. Fetal movement can trigger contractions.
    Or it was a warm-up session, that happens, too.
    Is this your first baby?
