I had a show this morning (4am) and had contractions I'd say every 30mins, this continued until 10:30, my contractions have varied, gone from 7mins apart to 15 to 30 and have no completely gone away, my waters haven't gone yet, and the contractions I have had have not been too painful.
Has anyone els had this before, I feel like I'm loosing the plot and making it all up in my head. Xxx

Sounds perfectly normal smile

Sounds normal. Labour has started but it isn't really 'established' yet. Some walking/staying on your feet and staying as calm as you can manage may help things along. smile

Sounds like both my labours. Hope you're cuddling baby now or very soon xx

Sounds like early labour. Sleep if you can, so you are well rested when it really gets going.

Yes normal! My waters went 48 hours before having DD2. A few piddly contractions for the first 12-18 hours which spun my head off (DD1 was 5 hours from losing plug to giving birth so I expected no2 to be the same) then nothing. Last 6 hours the real fun happened.

Won't be long. Hang in there! And congrats!

Agree re the rest and sleep if you can!

Yep, mine did this... Every day for four days until I really got going
