This is my first go around with labor. DD was a two day failed induction with pre-e that ended in a c-section. I've been having very mild contractions (maybe BH) fairly steadily for about 6 or 7 hours. They are sometimes as close as 3-4 minutes apart, but didn't really seem to be getting much stronger. They kept up through changing positions, but didn't really hurt all that much. Now I'm starting to wince just a little from the twinges, but not anything I need to "work through". At my 38 week appointment Tuesday I was not dilated at all but was "soft." Our hospital is over an hour away and we'd either have to have my mom drive an hour here to watch DD or take her with us and drop her off with my sister in the town where our hospital is. What do you guys think? Go to sleep and see if they keep/wake me up? Even if I get some sleep, wait until I can't talk through them?
