Contractions stopped?

Hello! For the past 5 days I felt intense period like pains a few times though the day but since 2 days ago they've completely gone. Should I be worried? I'm 38weeks

I had this on and off for 4 days and went into labour myself at 39+5 I had an induction booked for 2 days later due to reduced movements which I didn’t end up needing. When I was first checked I was already 2cm dilated, midwives said it was my body preparing just not fully progressed

@Bethany Allan so how long after the false labor did you Go into real labor? I dealed with the same thing Yesterday I had false labor Contractions

I started with the on and off contractions on Friday 2nd and went into labour on the 6th but it was slow progression, I was 2cm dilated that evening when I was reviewed in triage but I went into full labour on the 7th. My waters broke at 10am and she was born at 3.30pm
