MrsDusso :  You doing okay? I would definitely call the OB about this, because fetal blood supply can be reduced during contractions. They might want to monitor to make sure baby is tolerating things okay.

MrsDusso :  That sounds unpleasant.  Have you been checked at all?

Those are generally ineffective contractions but as a PP said, blood supply to the fetus can be decreased during prolonged contractions. I’d head over for a NST to be safe.

Hey fellow May mama- I had a few long contractions too (3 mins max, only a couple times). They were not too intense, closer to BH in terms of feeling. I feel like you and I have the same pattern of early labor over the last week!

I haven’t talked with my MW but did talk with my doula (whom I know is not a medical professional) who said things sounded normal. I will talk with my MW in a couple days for my 40w appointment. Keep me posted on what your provider says. Hugs- hope our babies come this week! So over this.

Oh and hi
