Today I am 39 weeks and I'm often get regular tightening in the evenings but have never woken up with them before and I have woken up they are 7 minuets apart so not hurt at all but I feel quite energetic!! We did have sex last night though for the first time in a month so not sure if I'm hurst reacting to that
After a couple of hours they got further apart and stopped, they then started back up for an hour at 5mins apart then stopped again. I'm so tired and have just woken up I have no idea what is going on but I feel a huge emotional wreck
It could be. I had contractions for 4 days. They felt the same as you describe. My waters didn't break though as baby's head wast fully engaged. But they were strong enough to wake me through the night. Good luck.
Ohhh I'm fed up lol last night my baby felt so low if I stood up and tried to walk it felt like he was going to fall out then during the night he must have moved back up again Iv had a few tightenings since I got up including when I move around but I am completely ignoring them from now on ☹️ How are you doing?
My ds is 2 weeks old now, and I was in early labour for a few days, but only at nighttime. Just remember that even though it doesn't feel like it, these contractions are doing something. My nighttime contractions got me to 4cm before the midwife broke my waters and put me on the hormone drip. Less than 2 hours later ds was born. Keep active. Go for a walk, bounce on your ball (if you have one) and just keep yourself busy (without wearing yourself out). It will happen soon.
