Please tell me hopeful stories!

Almost 40 weeks. 2 weeks ago I had an evening of false labour. Tuesday afternoon and evening, more false labour but getting more painful. Around 11.30 last night I started with contractions every 15 mins then 10 mins then 6 then 10 then 15 and now every 30. I've had about an hour of sleep. I've eaten pineapple, bounced on ball, walked, waggled on hands and knees. I sent DH to work as MAU says this could go on for days. I'm about to try housework. Please tell me things or give me tips to keep my spirits up! (Or post kitten photos.)

Apparently nipple stimulation works if you're up for giving it a go?! No first hand experience but it's supposed to be the only method backed up by research.

Thanks - I'll try anything! Relaxing on a birth ball while twiddling nipples. Ain't pregnancy glam?!

Thanks Badger, I'll pop along in a bit Smile
