  • I had false labor 4 times. Also 4 times is the max for them to stop your labor. I had false labor 2 nights in a row and delivered the next late afternoon in my car. Is this your first? I have had 4 kids.

  • this is my first. yesterday i had false labor a second time... first time was 35 weeks and they gave me a shot to stop the contractions. second was yesterday. i called the hospital (instructions from my dr.) and told them my situation and they said that they thought i was in early labor and gave me the instructions accordingly. now, i'm beginning to have contractions again, but a little stronger and closer than yesterdays. i walked a lot today and wore out my hubby so i'm hoping this is real.

  • ughhh! like at least twice a week for 1 1/2 months! The hospital nurses actually recognized us and knew our life story by the time I went into real labor (my "false labor" had me stuck at 5cm dilated for a month too)

  • 0. I never felt a single thing until the real thing hit. I was beginning to think I'd NEVER have her! lol. I didnt have so much as one BH the whole time. I finally went into labor on my own at 42w 2d.
