i would go to bed, if this is it then it'll do you good to get some sleep (if you can) or at least some rest

If it's really happening, it won't slow down.

Could you try going for a bath? That often either slows things down or speeds them up depending on what's happening.

Don't you believe it, if your baby is ready he/she won't care if you are unwell! I hope you get well soon and have your baby as the homebirth you so want. It sounds as though you are nearly there, get as much rest as you can as others have said, my labour really started when I gave up being active and went to bed. Good luck, keep us posted. xx

Lucky you, I still feel sick at the thought of mine! Maybe it wasn't painful because you are so ready and stretchy now.(I thought you had chickened out) Good luck anyway, get lots of rest now.
