Welcome to the contraction party!
Since there are so many of us experiencing contractions (but not in labor, or not sure
we're in labor), let's discuss it here. When did yours start (what time, day, or week), what are they doing now (nothing right now, every couple of hours, etc.), etc.? I swear on all that is holy, every time I read new birth stories, I start having minor contractions. My body is like, "Now? Now? You wanna do this now? You seem to be thinking about it right now..."
I got checked yesterday morning. No dilation, but very soft. I had a few contractions later that day that I blamed on the exam, a few more while I slept, and several episodes today where I feel very menstrual crampy for a half hour or so...then it fades for a few hours. Then it comes back for a half hour or so.
How about YOU?!
