Wondering if things had moved along any for you hollz?

I'm 37 weeks and have been having the same thing on and off for the last six days, getting stronger each day. Midwife told me on Sunday to expect things to start happening before too long, but no sign of it turning into anything 'real' as yet.

Went to bed early with a hot water bottle, as bump had been tight and sore the entire evening. Woke up a couple of separate times with painful contractions. Then this morning it had calmed right down again. I'm still getting tightening a few times an hour but they aren't painful.

Every time it starts up I think 'this could be it' but in reality it could be weeks yet confused
