I remember when I went into labor with Chase I thought to myself "how could anyone mistake that they were in labor - it is so obvious?!"
Well here I am pregnancy number two and I have already had about three instances where I have thought to myself - is this it???? I haven't gone to the hospital yet because I have been waiting for contractions that are so strong I can't speak / stand through them which have yet to arrive.
Last night I had a terrible backache and strong painful contractions from 11 pm - 4 am about 10 minutes apart but they never got any stronger or closer together and then they just disappeared at 4 am. Today my muscles ache and I am absolutely exhausted and feeling miserable. I am so crampy and stiff that I stood up after sitting for awhile and my poor legs just gave out.
False labor officially = cruel torture of pregnant ladies (both physical and mental)!
Hopefully the contractions won't be false for much longer or I may go insane...
