my early contractions seem to have stopped!

I'm 41 + 3 and have been experiencing mild early contractions.

They were moving towards roughly every 15-18 minutes apart. However, I've now not had one since 9.30pm.

Is this normal & if not, what do I need to do?

Having written that, obviously I've just had one! blushhmm

Yep, totally normal. Have a drink and a snack then get some sleep. They might start up again, or you could get a break for a couple of days.

Good luck... And don't worry you're on the way to holding your baby! flowers

I had on off contractions for 5 days before baby was born. But they were proper, end stage labour style contractions 2 mins apart and I wasn't dilating as DS was stuck. By the time they actually took me seriously it was EMCS time.

Hi guys i have been having contractions for last 4 days and having bulging feeling when they happen, they have been quite strong and 4 mins apart they last a couple of hours and then stop. I lost my mucus plug 3 weeks ago....... could it be real labour?

I'd start your own thread as you will probably get more responses that way.
