I feel as if my contractions are slowing down. Usually I would get them a lot in the morning and late at night, but now I barely even get them.
I am gona be 31 weeks Wednesday, this is my second pregnancy but it all still feels new to me because I had like no symptoms with my first except heart burn, I've been having real contractions and braxton hicks for a couple weeks now and my first was early at 36 weeks, doc said i will prolly have this one early too considering everything I've been going through, well so far all day today I've had contractions on and off and now I feel the baby's head pushing down like its gona pop out and he's m
I didnt tell him that they were stopping/slowing down. Even on the ride there they werent bad at all, but when I got there I had her within 2 hours. I was just excited that they admitted me. Good luck. I deliveedelivered and still visiting the site to see if you have a labor story.
If possible I need to be home so she can pick up Skippy when she gets back (she adores this dog - he's very nice). For now the contractions seem to be slowing down, so I'm going to plan on having a normal day unless they pick up again. Two weeks to go until due date!
30am it gave me pretty strong and constant contractions, but those started slowing down so they started me on pitocen. The pain is annoying! Cannot wait to meet me little girl!

Some time around 9pm they did an internal and found I was slightly effaced and 1cm dialated. The nurse said that's normal. As the contractions were slowing in frequency, but increasing in intensity and length they kept me until around1am. I'm on bed rest today and go into the dr tomorrow morning. Good news is... the rooms and nurses are all very friendly and now I'm all registered for when I do have the baby. Bad news....
Within about 15 minutes of my first dose the contractions slowed to every 10 minutes and are still slowing with each one. I was thinking I might be able to go off the pump after a week or so, but it seems like my body is just ready to go into labor. The side effects stink and having to carry around the pouch everywhere even in the shower kind of blows but it's all so worth it.
Turns out I was contracting every 5 minutes and was contracting for 7 hours. Contractions started slowing down and eventually stopped. Stayed at 1cm dilated even after going for a long walk around the hospital.Doctors told me to not be afraid to walk because she is trying to make her debut. You ladies have any ideas to help my little bean make her appearance?
I am slowing embracing the fact induction is very likely to be the route this baby is going to take! At first I didn't want to be induced, I wanted to do this on my own but at the same time I don't want to be over due and risk the fact that I might end up having a 10 lb baby…I'm already afraid Aliyah is going to be bigger than my first DD who was 8lbs 6 oz and I couldn't get her out, had to get an episiotomy to avoid tearing in so many different places.
Update!
okay update I am still at the hospital and will be over night, I am still only 75% effaced and 1 cm dilated but contractions are 3 to 6minutes apart and I started to spot so we are slowing things down for the night and just letting me relax and then tomorrow morning we are most likely going to start pictocin
keep doing that until you can grasp a basis of how frequently you're having them and if they are getting stronger or closer together and not slowing down. Also if you have more than five-six in an hour call your doctor to give them a heads up.
I'm 36 and 6, and my little girl just started slowing down yesterday lol. She was a little monster kicker until then, now all I really feel is her stretching sometimes.

the contractions arent consistent && they aree slowing down a little bit. . but the back pain is terrible. . i just came in mostly cauuse the bloood.
His movements have been slowing down some over the past 36 hrs. My plug has been gone for a while now. Could this mean its almost go time?
I'm on magnesium right now. Contractions are finally slowing down to every six minutes but that's only cause I'm sleeping and I've been on it for 8 hours and I'm on it till 6 am. Had to have more morphine again since my contractions were getting so bad.
I was induced in my first pregnancy and when the contractions came, there was no mistake that they were contractions. Contractions come at regular intervals and last a certain amount of time and then they're done until the cycle repeats. That was the weirdest thing for me and for my husband too.
OK So I have been dilated for 3 weeks now and been slowing loosing my mucus plug for a week and a half!! Fri-Mon I was having a lot of labor symptoms.. I was having TONS of contractions like at least every 15 minutes and sometimes they was even regular.. and on Sunday Monday and part of Tues I was having really loose bowel movements all day which I read happens usually only a few days before labor so I thought for sure it was coming..
Fingers crossed for you babe xxx.
All in a sudden it's like that switch is going off in my head that tells me it's ok to have the baby and not be pregnant anymore. The contractions are getting intense and his movement is slowing down now as he runs out of room. I'm more and more uncomfortable and really starting to feel ready! It's hard to care for my 2 year old and keep up with the housework these days. I have to admit that I want my body back and being able to tie my shoes or roll around on the floor with my daughter.
I have briefly passed out twice in the last 6 months because of a sudden slowing of my heart rate (<50). I had all the heart tests; electrocardiogram, tilt-table, electrophysiology test, treadmill test, holter monitor for 24 hours, etc. The monitor never saw an abnormal heart rate. All the other tests were normal. It is something that happens to me though about every three months, only while I am at rest(lying, standing or sitting).
I'm 38 weeks + 8 and her movement had slowed down alot i was at the doctor's today everything seems fine with her also i've been having really bad contractions these past few days and i found out today i'm two centimeters dilated so i guess the slowing down could mean labor is near or that it's just to cramped for her to move
-( The OB wanted to send us home but said we could stay for a few more hours and see what happens - we opted to stay. About 1230p.m my contractions basically fizzled. I had already gotten dressed and DH went to go find the nurse and tell her we were just going to go back home - she came in the room and said to wait she had 2 things on the monitor strip to show the OB and he might want us to stay.
Primrose oil is meant to take during your period to help with cramps. Basically slowing down contractions which is the opposite of what you want it to do. I'd return it. Also, no matter how late you start something, NEVER take more than the recommended dose. It is possible to od on herbal supplements and vitamins.
