Know how you feel I've been having contractions since eight weeks ago but mine weren't dilating me or regular :( 39+2 now.. and nothing..
I can't tell you how long it will last but I had 2 bouts of false labor this pregnancy but it is my 4th and final baby. I never had false labor with the other 3. The first bout of false labor actually sent me to the hospital. I was having contractions every 2-3 minutes apart and they were painful and with being my 4th I wasn't taking any chances. The second bout of false labor lasted for 2 days. I was having contractions every 5 minutes apart some were very painful others were not so I decided not to go. I am currently 38 weeks 5 days pregnant and if he doesn't come before thursday I am going to be induced at 7:30 am. Kinda hope he comes on his own but I don't think he will. What helped me was hot showers on my back and drink a lot of water to try and calm the baby down. Put your feet up and try not to do too much as this can cause more pressure and more contractions. Congrats on your little one! Take care!
turns out i was in labour and gave birth later that day.
Oh wow, congrats mummy :-)
