2 hours of bh, taken paracetamol and have hot water bottle on bump but they aren't dying down, if anything a little stronger (but only a little, nothing horrific). Could this be the real thing? I don't know whether to try and get more sleep or to wake dh up. Oh I'm 39+5 today as well X

Get more sleep. Could be either right now, but you'll need the rest! Things can take a long time to establish.

Very exciting though, not too long before you meet your little one!

After 3 hours I managed to get back to sleep even though they were getting more intense. Woke up with ...... Nothing! And I cried to dh. Just so fed up of this start-stop business now. Have lower back ache today but I'm not reading anything into it. I'm just being a grumpy bum and having a pity party sad

Same thing's been happening to me for a week. I've turned from a chilled-out lady enjoying maternity leave, excited that my body is gearing up for birth, to a weepy tired wreck blush. Hope things get started for you soon...

Jam, I feel your pain, had the same last night and woke with nothing. Then they restarted this morning but nothing regular, just annoying and inconvenient!
