I had contractions last night every 2-5 minutes until about 9pm. I got into a bath, lit a candle, drank some tea....and NOTHING.
I went to bed.
10:30pm they came back MUCH stronger and every 10 minutes. They continued throughout the night. I even had bloody show and other goopy stuff. In the middle of the night things stalled AGAIN. I just had STRONG contractions every 30 mins or so.
This morning..NOTHING. NADA. ZIP. ZERO.
This is the same labor I had with my first. Long and drawn out. I certainly did NOT expect this. Once my last two labors started they were OVER in 5 hours or so.
Today I'm tired. Hopefully I won't have to do this for another 24hrs.
