  • I had contractions every 5 minutes for a week with my youngest. I finally had to be given a little bit of pitocin, and he was born 3 hours later. I was also overdue.

  • Unless you are 2 weeks over you due date, don't worry yet. He will come when he is ready. LOL Your body is trying to prepare for all that.

  • I feel for you... I had regular contractions for 22 hours the week dd was born then they just STOPPED! But about 12 hours later htey started again and dd was born 9 hours later. Are you having back labor? DD was sunny side up and my midwife said that's why the contractions stopped and started like that. Hang in there. It won't be much longer!

  • I had the EXACT same thing happen!! I am 4 days past my due date and had very regular and painful contractions for HOURS and my mucus plug started to come out. I went to my appointment yesterday and the only thing that has changed at all is I am more effaced. I am 40 1/2 weeks and only 1/2 cm dilated!!!! UGH!!!!!!
