Contractions.......

Ive been having contractions every 5-10 mins for over an hr, they arnt getting stronger but the back pain is. Should I call my Dr or wait until it gets worse? Could this be it? Ive been 3cm for 3wks, Im so ready, maybe I could be just wanting this to be it more than it really is...

  • deffinetly call your docotor, my doc says to call and go to the hospital if they are 15 min appart. even if he says not yet atleast you called, its better to be safe than sorry, but since you were already dialated to 3 it would be best to call.

  • i would wait til they are 5 min apart and then go to labor and delevery because if u go now u might be there for a long time before anything begins to happen... if the pain gets really bad i would call ur doc to let him know whats going on and he will most likely tell u to wait til they are 5 min apart too... unless ur water breaks and then go asap... good luck hon

  • Yeah but she said she was already 3cm from 3 weeks ago, she could have dilated more since then, call your OB.

  • Call your OB, just becuase you're not having frontal contractions, those back pains you're feeling Are contractions.

  • my doctor goes by the 5-1-1 rule. Contractions every 5 mins, lasting 1 min and going on for an 1 hour. I would say give him/her a call.
