So last night at around 3 am I started getting contractions it feels like a pressure on my lower belly and it travels to my lower back like back menstrual pains... contractions were getting closer together like 5 to 8 min apart just not too strong, bearable. When I decided to check in to the hospital, Dr told me I was only half a centimeter dilated and told me that contractions were most likely triggered by having sex, since I had sex the night before... she said she didn't discourage sex because because baby's full term and sex can help kick start labor. So i was sent home... contractions have continued but areally very irregular and not too strong at all. I know they're not braxton hicks otherwise they would have stopped when I changed positions. Has anyone had an experience like this?
