My body can't decide if it wants to go into labor or not! I spent majority of last week having contractions on and off, just when I think they are getting worse they suddenly stop. Went to Dr yesterday and asked her to check me ( which I normally don't do). I'm 3 cm dilated, 50% effaced and his head is fully engaged. I know this could mean nothing but still makes me wonder. Then this morning I lose my plug and start having the worst backache and what was feeling like contractions then they just stopped. Now I'm having contractions again! I just want my body to figure out if it is in labor or not!

I'm in the same boat. For the last week, just when I think about calling to tell them I'm in labor, contractions stop. I have really painful ones randomly throughout the day and if it's not that it's a backache. I was 3cm and baby was engaged when they checked me on Wednesday. I'll also be 38 weeks on Monday, lol. It will probably still be another couple of weeks and that's fine but grrr I hate getting my hopes up.

Walk, Walk, Walk, oh and did I say walk!? It will help speed up the process.  It helped with my last one. I walked ALL the time, as much as possible.

Sounds to me like you are in labour and those on and off contractions are dilating you slowly and probably turning baby just right.

Its called prodromal labor (early labor) its just the early stages. With each contraction it moves you closer however. So the best thing you can do is relax when you can, rest when you can, take baths, etc. Because it will be baby time soon :) Good Luck

Have you tried sex? It might speed things up.

Did that yesterday, walked alot today and drank pineapple juice. All of it either put him to sleep or made him hyper but nothing with me.
