I have been having contractions consistantly for the past 48 hours! Every half hour to 45 minutes, and about a 3.5 hour period tonight where they were 10 minutes apart... UGH i wish he would just decide to come or these would stop... They are kicking my a$s! I called the hospital this afternoon, just to see what they would say about it, and they told me not to worry about it... Just to call them if my water broke, i start bleeding,if the baby stops moving, or when my contractions get 5 minutes or less apart. BTDT moms, how long did you have consistant contractions before entering active labor?
I don't remember specifically. Are you talking about BH contractions or painful ones? I tend to agree with the advice you got...if they're close together, &/or You have other signs of labor, that's when I'd go in.
Are you pumping for your little one? Planning to pump?

I didn't really have strong ones until I was actually in labor which was nice because I knew it was the real deal. I had a friend due at the same time who had strong ones for weeks and constantly thought that she was getting close to going into labor. She ended up not actually going into labor until she was 42 weeks. I hope they lessen for you so you can rest!
unfortunately, some ladies have contractions like that for weeks before baby comes. I'm sure it sucks and is extremely uncomfortable. Hopefully they will stop for you for awhile and you can relax
Yep! I was contracting every 6-8minutes last monday, then by wednesday I was contracting every 2-4minutes (which I'm still doing) They stopped changing my cervix so I was sent home, but it doesn't look to be stopping anytime soon. And if you're not in active labor there's nothing they can do for you.
Some are really painful, it feels like i am being stabbed in the cervix and like i am being pulled apart.. Then i may have 2-4 that are painless. Kind of a cycle i guess. They won't go away no matter what i do :/ I have an appointment on thursday, so i am just going to try and relax until then!
I'm sure when you go to your appointment (if you make it until then), that your Dr. will check you. You may be surprised, all the times I've had contractions that hurt, especially in the cervix region, were actually causing me to dialate.
