May 8th was my early ultrasound due date and today is my LMP due date. From 10PM to 2AM (and past that) I had what started as mild contractions, and right before I fell asleep at 2AM turned into contractions I actually had to remind myself to breath through and were definitely getting more painful/lasting longer. I woke up over and over again throughout the night to contractions, but kept reminding myself to try to get sleep while I could before heading to the hospital. Well it's 6AM and this has happened before, just 2 days ago. I had contractions 5mins apart for 5hrs only to wake up and have them gone!
Here I am, finally allowing myself to be up with less than 4hrs sleep, and have only had one contraction in 20mins that was much more mild than what I was feeling this morning. What am I doing wrong? Am I crazy for going to sleep with contractions like that? I've always heard that nothing will mess with real contractions, but it seems as though me going to sleep these past two false alarm times has. :/ I started losing my mucus plug a week ago with my first real contractions. They were irregular and spaced far apart, but definitely dilating me as I saw when the doctor checked me Monday. I was 3cm dilated, 80% effaced, and at station 0. With 2 nights of 5+hrs of regular contractions, I can only imagine what I must be at now. Has anyone else experienced this?
