Hi I’m currently 40+2 and this is my first pregnancy. I had been experiencing lots of BH for several weeks but felt latent phase had begun Wednesday (differing symptoms pain travelling in primarily back and period pains), the contractions are getting worse daily but they start for hours and then stop for many many hours. This is now day 4 of latent phase and I’m just wondering if anyone else has had it going on this long, with intense contractions. Very deflated as they are extremely painful and I’m getting psyched up and then they settle again. Passed mucus gradually over days. No waters breaking. Loose stools today. Any info would be great!
