    Hello ladies,
    I went to hospital last Wednesday at2 am with terrible pain in my right side. I was 37 + 5. Only to find out that I was 1cm in labour and contracting lots. Midwife wanted to keep me in because of the amount of contractions but I wasn't in to much pain so we decided to go home. Contracted for a whole day and then contractions stopped!!!!!! So since then I have been having random contractions and period pains every day. Has anyone experienced this? And how long did it go for?
    I'm just frustrated because I feel I'm waiting for something to happen!!!!
    Thanks xx

    Have your waters broken? I had this but my waters had gone. Had contractions for 2 days, they slowed down but never went away. I never knew they could slow down after they started as at one stage they were 3 main apart I thought wahay things are moving now but I was only 1-2 cm. This time I will stay at home as long as possible so I think you are doing the right thing. It sounds like baby will be here in the next day or 2 though. Best of luck. Looking forward to hearing your news :)

    Hope you've had your baby by now. A friend of mind had similar to you. Went on for 10 days, poor thing. But she went onto have a nice quick labour once things really started.
