  • Sounds like your body is revving up! Yay!! Don't focus on them until you start noticing some "bloody show" Then you know the real action is getting started. Congrats to you, by the way!

  • Yes, it's called Prodromal Labor (or as the hospital staff like to say "false labor") but it's not false at all. It is in fact real but it is just your bodies way to laboring for this pregnancy.

  • mine have been regular for 2 hours (every 20-25 min).. just preparing myself if they stop.. i have been so very ready for labor to begin and i have just decided to let it go... so i dont want to think too much into the contractions for now
