My waters went around midnight, and I've been into hospital. They sent me home to wait for labour to start. It did and I was having contractions every 2.5-4 min which were 30-40s in length. However, it seems to have slowed right down now, more sporadic and weaker:shorter contractions. I'm tired after being up all night- should I take the opportunity to slew a bit or stay active to try and ramp things up again?
If you want to sleep, sleep. If you go to bed, can't sleep and feel restless, get up and go for a walk. Basically, listen to your body and do whatever it prompts you to do. In both my labours, I had moments of extreme tiredness. I went to bed at those points.
