  • Just means that you are contracting and things are STARTING to get moving but you are nowhere near ready to deliver so there is no reason to be at the hospital.

    Try having sex with orgasm or walk but honestly this a GREAT time to rest because you will need your strength for when the REAL contractions kick in.

    Some women have been know to be in early labor for a couple of days so I would REST TONIGHT and then if things have not picked up before morning try walking and sex to see if you can get things moving.

    GL...I bet you will be in major labor by morning....REST!!

  • Get some rest. If you can sleep through the contractions and back pain. When I was pregnant with my 3rd my hubby took me on a walk, We walked twice around the lake which was about 5 miles. I couldn't walk or hardly move the next day. Thankfully I didn't go into labor that day I was exhausted!! Try and sleep tonight you can walk more tomorrow!
