  • if you cannot tell, go to the er.When contractions come that fast it is called "piggybacking" and you need to go NOW.good luck mom!

  • How intense? Do you feel a peak? Or two? This can happen late in labor or well before labor... Is this your first baby? Are you healthy? Are you able to easily cope through?
