Last night, I realized that I am finally starting to have some good ol' fashion false labor. How do I know its false? Because it starts and stops and the contractions don't increase in intensity with time.
Why am I excited about this "fake out labor" so to speak? Mostly because 2 of my children were born between 5-7 days after their due date. And if you know me, you know I don't do "overdue" very well.
Nevertheless, in times past, whenever I started having daily false labor, real labor was about a week or 2 away. That would mean on "on time" baby for me!
