So to time a contraction you start timing when the first one happens and than end when the next one does? -
I went to the er last night cause i was having pain - i was contracting 8 minutes apart but had irregular ones, so they sent me home - im still 2cm but now im 70% effaced.... & i have been up throughout the night with them -

  • you do start when the first one starts and then end when the second one starts. i went to the hosp at 7 min apart, and it still was at least 2 weeks before i delivered. hopefully it goes faster for you! You will know though when its happening, wont even have to count!
