    I've had them for weeks and no baby. Everyone is really different. Some women will contract for months only to need to be induced while others will have nothing and then suddenly go into labor. It's a huge test of our patience and a lesson in letting our bodies/babies do what they need to. I need this pep talk frequently myself right now!

    This exactly. It's different for every woman. I've been contracting for weeks but am "overdue" and staring down the barrel of an induction. It's hard to be patient but we must!!

    I didn't feel any real contractions until after my water broke. Hang in there. Baby's gotta come out!

    This.

    I'm 41w and haven't felt any other than BH.

    Buckle up, buttercup. You've likely still got a long ride ahead.

    This is pretty much me too. It freaks me out and makes me feel like I'm never going to go into labor. But as PPs said, EVERY woman is WAY WAY different. Hang in there!

    I have 6 days until induction and so far I've had ONE painful sensation and I'm not even sure I'd call it a contraction. I've never had BH or any false alarms. It's frustrating but yeah, we have to give up control on this issue. It truly is not up to us.

    Bh none stop over here but NOTHING down low and no dilation or effacement going on.... Means hours of boredommmm

    Mine started at 37 weeks, somewhat regular and increasingly painful, go for a couple of hours, then totally stop. They've been playing around for weeks now without any significant progress. Don't even get excited when they start now, just like "oh... this again." I'm hoping my water breaks so I have an obvious sign things are actually happening.

    I'm jealous of you ladies who haven't felt anything!! The waiting is torture for all of us but I would much rather be able to get around without being in a constant state of cramping or timing contractions and wondering if this set will be "the ones". So frustrating! But our sweet babies will be worth it and I keep telling myself I won't be pregnant forever. :)

    Well, I wouldn't say I haven't felt "anything"- I had 3 episodes just before 40w of several hours of horrible, constant cramping. It was diagnosed as an "irritable uterus". Seriously miserable and not at all productive in baby removal!! :(

    Boo @pineconey‌ !!! We're irritable enough as it is at this point... There's no need for our utes to add insult to injury! I hope it gets going for you soon!

    My whole abdomen is sore today like I've been doing ab workouts... which I guess that's what these ineffective contractions are. Maybe when he's born and my baby weight magically melts away it will reveal a six pack! ;)

    @adheaton1387‌ I bet I've got a 6pack from all of the coughing/gagging I've done since August. No joke, it's been crazy.

    I'm 40+5 and have felt like 3 contractions. One was before a major poop attack, one was after my membranes were stripped and one was during a bumpy car ride.
