Irritated - May 15

I'm 40 weeks pregnant as of today. Since week 36, I have been experiencing regular mild contractions. I wouldn't say they are Braxton Hicks because they are very regular and they do not go away with changing activity. On the other hand they are not true labor because they are not getting more painful and are doing nothing to open me up. Two days ago I had just finally opened up to barely a centimeter after 3 full weeks of this. I was told this is called "prodromal labor". Does anyone have any experience with this or any helpful information? If I can't get things moving into real labor, is there at least any way to stop it?

Hi. I'm at 36 weeks, and I have been experiencing mild, dull, aches... They don't send me to the floor, but they are semi-painful. I also have a high tolerance for pain though, so I don't know. They feel like period cramps. Is this what pain you're talking about? If so, I think that's what I'm going through.

What I am experiencing is exatly what I experienced when labor began with my first child. My whole uterus tightens, my lower back hurst, and I get menstrual type cramping. The only issue is that it has been continuing like this the whole time about 10 to 15 minutes apart all day every day without getting any worse or closer together the way true contractions are supposed to. It is truly driving me nuts!
