Prodromal Labor?

Is there any actual way I can get out of this?

I have been contracting regularly since I got up at 7am. No matter what I am doing (walking, sitting, cooking...) I have them. I am not sure I can live like this until I finally go into true labor.

HELP!?

Feed your children human milk as long as possible, it might save their life. It did my son's.

nothing I know of, but I had that with our fifth. It's rough, but maybe your actual labor will be short, mine was only 27 minutes lol.

If you have time to go have bath, then that sometimes will stop contractions if it isn't real labor. All the best!

Doubt it. Your body is doing something to get baby ready for birth time.

That's what I was told to do!
If I didn't want the wine they told me to take some tylenol and have a bath. And then try and sleep as much as you can and try to ignore it all as best you can.

Once things really got going it was really fast for me. I was almost crowning at home when I finally even realized I was really in labour.

I had that about a week ago and my mw suggested magnesium. I took one and went to sleep. When I woke everything had calmed down. If you are in true labor it probably wouldn't do anything to stop it.

This is probably the best advice yet.I would try it if it were me.That is part of what they give you to stop labor at the hossy if you are too early.

I have been taking Magnesium for a few weeks to help with severe constipation. I take 2 pills every night.
