Q: False labour or start of real deal

Hi ladies. For the past 2 nights I have had 10 hours of contractions immediately after we had sex. First night had sex then a walk and contractions were breathable and wore off at 4am for me to sleep. Through the day yesterday had a few fleeting pains so thought we would have sex again to try and start labour. Immediately after ,the contractions came thick and fast and this time painful. On average every 3-5 mins for 30-45 seconds. Ended up vomiting and had diarrhea because of pain. Had a bath which eased the pain but didn't stop contractions.lost lots of clear jelly discharge with veins of blood don't know if that was plug or aftermath of sex. Phoned midwife she didn't think I was needing to go in. They stopped at 3am and finally managed to sleep and now no contractors just tender lower abdomen. What is happening. It's not braxton cause it doesn't stop when I change position or have bath etc. Is this baby on its way or my body just messing me around. No sex tonight!!!

I have similar symptoms of early labour. It's defo your plug not the sex. Mucous is clear jelly like can be brown, tinged with blood or bloody. I went hospital on Weds as I've been having mild contractions every 10-30mins for 72hrs. When I was checked at hospital I was 1cm dilated & baby was fully engaged. Midwife may say not to go in but maybe if you talk to the labour ward they might bring you in, to assess you & baby. Like mine did. I still have contractions & I lost some plug this morning too.. at the moment it looks like a waiting game.. I would say that your contractions are thinning your cervix at the moment.. The midwife at the hospital said that the time I need to go into hospital is the time when my contractions stop me in my tracks, take my breathe away and that's all I can focus on.. don't know if it helps but I am kind of in the same position as you :).. its so fustrating. I ache in my back and pelvis just hope it's not much longer I'm exhausted already. Good
