  • Having contractions every minute? Did I read that right?

    If you are having any contractions that are hurting you, or are getting closer together, then you need to either call your doctor or go to the OB department at your hospital.

  • Are you still able to walk and talk? Clearly you can type still. How long have they been going on?

  • how long has this been going on for.. you are having contractions ever min for 10-15 secs each? I would go to l and d and have them monitor me if that was the case and it was going on for awhile.

    drink a glass of water, and lay on your left side.. see if it's just braxton hicks contraction..

  • How long has it been? Have they increased in time? If they've increased and are getting stronger then i'd go to the hospital. You can never be too cautious. They could be braxton hicks which i'm sure you know are similiar.

  • last week i was having them every 1-3 mins, and could barely talk, spent most of the day curled in a ball crying, if they are that painful go to the hospital. im 37 weeks now.
