  • I wish they wouldn't say "false." No, it isn't labor, but what you went through was real, it was true, and it was important work! Your body might have some "revving up" to do while it's working towards labor.
    It could be soon, or maybe not.
    Are you "term"?
    Do you know baby's position?
    Are you healthy, hydrated, rested, stressed?

    What will happen next? Well, who knows... lol. You need to be patient and trust in the process.
    I suggest not getting vaginal exams, though. That can really help.
