I found being busy and not thinking about being due or late or not having pains started my labour off.

Another false alarm for me. Last night contractions started becoming more regular and frequent about 8 pm, and more painful then the night before. I started timing them and by about 10:30 they were around 5 min apart. We waited for about an hour, then started to get ready to go to the hospital! I started packing last minute things and hopped in the shower. Right after the shower the contractions started slowing down to 15 min then 20 min then longer. Argh!

I then was able to go to sleep for several hours and then they started again every 15-20 min and even more painful at about 3:30 am. So here I am now at 6:30 am. I hope they start up again during the day today. I have a Dr. appt at 12, so at least I can ask her what's going on or what to do. So frustrating! Just when I thought I was on my way!

I had regular contractions 5mins apart from 1130pm to 5:30am last night but just as they were starting to get so intense that I was going to head in, they stopped. Now they're irregular and prob more Braxton Hicks - they still hurt though. I'm so tired now. Would've been much better if all that happened during the day. off to bed now. hopefully they'll start again soon (after I get a few good hours of sleep!).

I'm doing so much walking and staying upright that my feet swell! They haven't swollen at all throughout this pregnancy, but because I'm so desperate to let gravity do it's thing, they're all puffy - I can't win!

When you figure that out, let me know. Mine do the same with this baby, and have for the last happened with my last baby also. Eventually they just keep coming, and it's time. Our bodies are just's a real pain though, I know.

This is weird to me because I walked every night for an hour when I was overdue with my son and then my contractions came while I was sleeping at like 3am. I think when the baby is ready, it will come :) I know its hard, I am in the same boat - sporadic contractions (actually, I think they are more like Braxton hicks) and then when I shower or sleep they go away. I want her to come too!
