    Default Labour keeps stopping

    Hi everyone,

    I am 39 weeks pregnant and last week I had 2 days of painful, regular contractions. They started on the Sunday night and lasted till tuesday night. But they stopped every night and then started again the next morning. I saw my Midwife and I had dilated 1cm. Then on Tuesday night everything stopped completely. On Friday morning i had more painful contractions and then they stopped again at lunch time. I've had no mucus plug or show but i think i might have had a little trickle of my waters today. Has anyone else had an experience where their labors stop and start? Do you think i will have my baby soon? I feel so frustrated with the waiting

    hugs, it is pre labour...which is a good sign that things will get moving in the next week or so.

    It is very normal to be 1-2 cm dilated and not in full labour.

    Just hang in there and relax and know that your body is getting it self ready and bubs into position with the "practicing" that it is doing.

    Maybe head up to birth suite if your think your waters broke. They can check to see if they have or haven't and then send you home again. You can get an infection if your waters are broken for too long so best to get that checked out now rather than leave it for a few days.

    Default Labour keeps stopping

    When I thought my waters broke last preg, they asked me to put on a fresh pad then come in and let them check it after some more leaking ...

    Call your Hosp & ask

    Hi ange

    I had this with both pregnancies. It's frustrating but try to look at as your body revving up for labour. Hoping bubby arrives soon x

    So I had more bad period pain last night and it woke me up a couple of times. I've been taking pain killers which helps the pain but I also threw up this morning and I feel really nauseated. I lost a little more of my waters this morning too. I hope this means I'm in labour

    Have you told the hospital you think you're waters have broken? They will usually put a time frame between when waters break and when bub needs to come out. Good luck I hope things start to progress for you!

    Have you told your midwife/obstetrician/hospital that your waters have broken?

    Your waters can break without you going into labour, and you've lost that protection between the outside world and the inside of your uterus and get an infection which can make you and the baby very sick. Please at least call birth suite.
