  • Yes. If the contractions are coming at a regular pace then it's time to call the Dr. for advice. Just and FYI, when the baby is close to crowning it feels like you need to have a BM. Just might want to put your hand down there to make sure you don't feel something weird first. LOL.

  • It feels like nothing you have felt before unless you have had children. How are you now?
