I have been having them all day and they have been strong and hurting..http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley5.gif

I just don't remember fake contractions feeling like this with my other 2 babies. I have even had them before with this one and they did not hurt. My stomach would just tighten and release.

But today they were awful... I was almost wondering if I was in actual labor but the contractions were not lasting anywhere near the same amount of time, and they were not coming at the same times either.

Ugh I guess this is what I have to look forward to for the next 8 weeks. http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley19.gifFun fun!! lol

I just hope this baby will hold off for atleast another 4 weeks before she tries to come!! Right now is still too early!

Try drinking alot of water- sometimes it's a matter of being a little dehydrated (I had this happen to me this summer).





39 weeks and counting.... :)

Thanks for the tip! I never would have thought it.

My mother always tells me to lay down and go to sleep. She says they will stop if it is false labor, and that you cannot sleep during real labor.

Yea it's funny before I had my son. I would always message online w/ my friend in Cali she would always ask if I had contractions yet & I would be like nope. Then the day I went to the hospital w/ my son, I said maybe I have been having them all along, because I just thought I was cramping really bad. When I did go to the hospital they said I was dehydrated & my uterus was just irritated & I wasn't in labor. Needless to day 4 hours later the pain got worst & they finally said I was having contractions. He was born 11 hours after I got admitted in the hosptial
