Activities that slow or stop prodromal labor contractions:
1. Sleeping (I think. Although I might just be sleeping through it).
2. Taking a bath.

On the bright side, I’m pretty clean from all those baths. And seeing as I usually don’t take showers when I have a newborn, I may as well enjoy that while it lasts.
