I'm contracting every 12 minutes. I've been having these contractions since 3:30 this morning, it's 11:18 pm, so around 20 hours. OMG I haven't slept since they started and I'm in pain every time they happen. I called L&D and was told not to worry about them until they hit 3-4 minutes apart or my water breaks...which I understand, but damn it I WANT THIS TO STOP. I have tried everything today. I walked...and walked...walked some more, and then walked again. Climbed up and down the stairs. Drank a ton of water (in case I was having contractions because I'm dehydrated), AND even did the whole sex thing. I even tried an old wives' tale of taking a shot of A1 (not recommended...it made me drool). I want to sleep. I want to be able to either relax or go into full blown labor!



Now, to add to this, my son has suddenly decided that this week is the week he will start his sleep regression. So I'm constantly up and down with him, too -_- I'm so sleepy...And my uterus hurts...lol

You could just go to L&D like a crazy lady demanding a bed and everything else lol.
Should be over soon enough though. Good luck!!
