I woke this morning at about 6am with definite contractions about 3-5
minutes apart. Having got both children sorted and the tens machine on
they've now pretty much faded. Dh has gone off to do his exam he had set for
today so I'm just wandering around wondering whether I was a bit premature
in sorting everything. Any suggestions for kick starting contractions again.
I'm still getting a few but they're pretty far apart?

Or maybe the tens machine is working better than I thought...

I remember:
- walking
- nipple stimulation
- intercourse
- spicy foods?

Yeah, my brain won't give me more right now.

The DW had a 2 hour long set of sporadic (5, 6, 7, 8 minute pause in
between) contractions 2 weeks prior to delivery. Nothing came of those
of course.

OB ruptured her membranes week before, nothing. Had intercourse that
weekend, nothing. She passed her mucus plug shortly after.. nothing
(most say this is much to do about nothing)

We had intercourse (sorry for the TMI) I think friday/saturday 2 days
before labor... so who knows if that did the trick. She also had a set
of contractions during the week leading up to the labor as well.

A week today (14th). Contractions are about every 10 minutes lasting 30-60
seconds at present. Bit frustrated as they were 2-3 minutes apart 6 hours
ago. I was hoping for a nice labour like I had for #2, but then this one
would be due to put in an appearance within a couple of hours.

Have you got access to homeopathic remedies? I bought th birth kit from
Helios and the booklet tells you which things to take if things stop, or if
contractions are occuring without dilation etc. at least it feels like you
are doing something!
