I think I'm in the beginnings of early labor...painful but not unbearable contractions about 1 minute long, 10-15 minutes apart for most of last night. I'm currently at home on leave & hubs is at work. I know that things could fizzle out or pick up in intensity from here. In the meantime, I've stopped timing contractions and am just trying to go about the day and take it easy, figuring that I'll know if & when anything picks up!

Any tips on getting through early labor? What did you do & what would you do differently? The thought of this going on for a long time is daunting.
