I need someone to share this with before I go crazy. I had a dr appointment on Monday and discussed lower back pain/ random contractions with my Ob. I'm almost 3 cm 50% effaced. Well since Monday I've been having more regular contractions about 5 mins apart for like two hours and then they die out and will start again later. This is foreign territory to me because with DS I had no prior contractions to my water breaking and had a baby 7 hours later. I know I could be in for weeks of contractions but I just wanted to see who is going through the same thing and what your plan is as far as heading to L & D.
