Less and less bh contractions everyday

im sceduled for an induction next week and hoping to go into labor on my own. i was having contractions for about two weeks now (pretty much non stop for 4 days) but these past two days i almost never have them! or when i do i barely notice them now. still they keep me up at night. i was 2cm 70% effaced last time i was checked. is this normal for them to die down like this? does it mean labors not close? ive also lost my mucous plug and baby has dropped.

  • Yes, it's normal. With my daughter, I had contractions for two weeks before she came ! I went to the hospital one day and my doctor told me to go home, I would be fine. The contractions stopped, so my husband and I went out of town. We checked into our hotel that same night and my water broke. Contractions come and go. We are all different. I lost my mucous plug almost 2 weeks before baby came.
