  • It's completely dependent upon the person. No two labors are exactly alike

  • That really depends. If they are that close you should probably call, especially if it is your 2nd pregnancy. I also remember you saying you had a "wet feeling" which may mean your water is leaking. It is probably time for you to head in.
