I think I'm in early labour, yay! I have been having contractions every 4-6mins for a few hours now and they're getting slightly stronger. I am lying in bed and am finding that they seem shorter and a little less consistent in frequency while I'm lying down. When I'm sitting up they're a bit more regular (about the same strength though) and it feels like one big constant contraction if I'm standing/walking around.
So should I stay in bed and attempt to get some rest or get up and sit or move around? What's most likely to keep things going/progressing?
I'm booked in for a second attempt at induction tomorrow morning at 7am and am so hoping that I'm going into labour on my own. I don't want it to fizzle out!!

That's exciting! I actually have no idea but this will hopefully be me in a few weeks so if you don't mind I'll "subscribe" and follow your journey!
Can you call the hospital and ask the midwives what they recommend doing now?

I might do that soon if things start to stall. I'm hoping it ramps up!

If you really are in labour, you more than likely won't stall now even if you rest. Do whatever feels right, if you want to conserve energy, go for it. If you feel like walking, go for it! Just listen to your body... and best of luck for a beautiful labour and birth!

I am still lying in bed and it's not stalling, so that's good. I've had a couple that are stronger and there's no way i'llbe able to sleep through them. Might give it another half hour or so and then move to the couch if I can't sleep at all. Doesn't help that DH keeps snoring!!!
