Had false labor every night for 2 weeks. 10pm to 2am. Was annoying.

Quoting Nikki Medina:" I'd call L&D!!! "


Why? If her contractions stopped and nothing is happening no reason to call.



OP: I'd monitor your contractions, drink a glass of water, relax and see where they go from here. Good luck!

It started at around 37 weeks and she was born at 39w6d. I tried everything, but it just wasn't time.

i got super excited and want it to start happening again! i also might be leaking amniotic fluid since yesterday..... i was measuring smaller than the previous week so the midwife sent me home with some strips to test myself and its been pretty inconclusive.. any ideas to try and get things going?

Hm, lots of walking... I'd say sex, but you shouldn't do that if you're leaking.



Are you doing a hospital birth? If so, I'd contact L&D if you think you're water is leaking.
