OK...this is my third child but first experience with Braxton Hicks contractions. Didn't really have them with my first two!

Anyways the last few weeks they have been random and minutes apart for hours...like I'm in labor! Its so frustrating!
Today I had my last OB appointment. (I'm 40 weeks)They did a stress test. I was contracting every 1-2 minutes! And these were strong! The doctor told me he thought I was going to deliver today. He even checked me twice.
Well I get home and they are gone.

Now its the evening. Same thing again. Strong contractions. Feels like he is going to push his head out. I'm just waiting for them to get worse before I go to the hospital again! Ugh

Oh, and I'm STILL 2 cm

Update 1/23 I have been having contractions all day...ugh! And tonight I'm having extreme pressure. I really hope this is the start of something!

1/24 still pregnant. Had pain and pressure all night. I didn't go in though because the pain never got worse.

 I had them some with my first two, but had them a lot with my last one... Not trying to scare you but he ended up being stillborn... I found out at my last appt. The day after he was due.

My sister had them for 20 days with her last baby!!!

I didnt realize I was having BH with either girl. With DS I swore I was having them, but it was actual labor. Sorry mama.

I went 42 weeks and had back labor for 2 weeks. Miserable as can be.
