  • I had those light belly tightening contractions for 16hrs. It was just enough to keep me awake all night. My water broke the next morning leaving me EXHAUSTED when it came time to deliver my son!
    You are so close to the end- Id walk, have sex (if your still allowed) I was soo anxious to go into FULL BLOWN labor. I would have tried anything!
