  • I never counted at all..
    If you're doing the hospital thing then it's the time between contractions.. Don't count short contraction. Count the ones that make you stop your conversation or take a pause in floor washing. (The best thing you can do in labour is wash floors on hands and knees.)

  • L&D told me to count how long each contraction lasts and how long from the beginning of one to the beginning to the next
