Thought it had started. Maybe I was wrong

Went to bed Thursday evening late but couldn't sleep. Bad pains. Got up and saw my bloody show. Contractions continued every 4 mins but then slowed up to every 6 and then stopped around 8am. Nothing since then really. Not sure if I should go to the delivery suite to be examined. Baby still moving.

It sounds like your body is just having a practise run!
I did this the day before I went into labour properly. I was utterly convinced I was in labour and then it all stopped. Good luck!

I don't think you need to go to hospital to be checked but why don't you give your midwife a call if you are feeling anxious? Let the hospital or you midwife know if your waters break though smile

Coming back but less intense. Every 10 mins. Trying to sleep. Argh. I wanted the baby to cone but this is horrible

It's very annoying isn't it! Try to think of it as your body moving in the right direction!
It'll be done soon and you'll have a beautiful little squish

This happened to me a few days before I went into labour. Sounds like it won't be long !!
