In fact, I feel like I`m going crazy and everything in and around my stomach hurts and hurts. I think I will give in and demand induction. Okay, that`s the best contribution to this – neither my wife nor I heard of prodromal contractions until my wife was hit last night. Our story: My wife is at 40W2D, last night around 8pm started with bh`s very regular and close. I started with the timing where it seemed like they were less than 10 minutes of frequency. Observed how the frequency was getting closer and closer. Very exciting moment, we made our last preparations, packed the last items, etc. The contractions were very benign, as all the books/blogs say that the first works should be. then.. Around 11:30 p.m.m last night, like a freight train, she hit strong contractions that made her clench her arms, grind her teeth in pain, have to breathe through each of them, from midnight to about 7 a.m.m.
I woke up for 7 hours every 5-7 minutes – it was hard for both of us. Called the birth center at 3 o`clock from the .m., they said that we had prodromal work – prodromal what??? – I went online, I found nothing but forums – which I always take with a grain of salt, read and read all our baby books as “what to expect if you expect a website” and the book have nothing about it, all the literature says that early contractions of labor* could be painful, but nothing really describes it well enough to convince me, that we were not in active labor. I was puzzled and stayed up all night, googling for between the time of their contractions, frantically googling early labor pains, super painful early labor contractions, nothing could explain it. Her contractions began at intervals of about 8 minutes, for 30 seconds, three .m. They worked slowly 5 minutes apart and for a minute, then they were reduced to about 4.5 minutes and started to become 60 to 90 seconds long, then worked again up to 6 minutes apart, lasting 90 seconds, and dragged there for about 4 hours until 7 a.m. Jessica, who is expecting her second baby, already has a plan in case it happens again. “This time I`m planning a home birth and plan to skip labor for as long as possible,” she told us. “I think I was so excited to be in labor that it was impossible to ignore it. I intend to have some distractions ready this time (making a birthday cake, going for a walk, etc.) so I don`t just look at the clock.
“During my second pregnancy, I had 3 days of prodromal labor. I started having contractions on Sunday. They lasted several hours and got closer, but never less than 5 minutes apart. After a few hours, they turned off and then started again a few hours later.

Melatonin is something like the buddy hormone for oxytocin, it helps oxytocin work more efficiently to increase the frequency of contraction.
And melatonin is produced by the body only at night. * Keep in mind that contractions can also increase if you are stressed or dehydrated. If you have more contractions than normal, try to increase your water intake during the day and take care of yourself. Now in week 3 of prodromal work with my 2nd son. I had never heard of it. My 1st was sunny and ended with an emergency C. I`m now trying a VBac, but they`ll do a C at 39 1/2 weeks if it doesn`t come alone. Trying to have faith and relax during prodrome is much more difficult. It also weighs on the family. I came home yesterday after 1pm in the hospital, extended by a 2.

Of course, say this to painful contractions 3-4 minutes apart, nausea, diarrhea and headaches. – If you have unusual bleeding/meconium in your amniotic fluid or other concerns, always contact your midwife/doctor – this blog post is not meant to be medical advice. I am grateful for this thread. I`ve never posted on a baby website and I should. This is my second pregnancy and I have had prodromal contractions for a week and a half. It was a real emotional roller coaster ride, especially when I thought the baby would arrive early – the first week of December. The actual due date was 10.
December and now we are just Christmas Day, which will be my mark of 42 weeks and they will have to induce. On December 14, I had 5 hours of constant contractions 3 minutes apart, which lasted about 30 to 40 seconds, and then after a shower went out. Since then, I have done acupuncture twice (same one where they stimulate the needles for half an hour – painful) to perform the baby`s movements that rotate daily. Sex. Spicy food. Hypnobirth sessions. Massages. A caress of the membranes (December 18) Then after the 2nd acupuncture treatment yesterday around 11 am the contractions began all day until 6 pm were spaced 5 minutes apart for 1 minute of a duration 1 hour and so we went to the hospital – and only 3cm extended – moderately soft – and baby is -2. . .
