Big scared last night!

About 7:00 last night I had a normal Braxton Hick contraction, but about 45 mins later i had another one, just a little more painful, so I did what my doctor told me too, put my feet up and have a glass of water. That worked till about 30 mins later, and another hit and lasted a little longer than the other two. So my husband out on some relaxing music and rubbed my belly to keep me stress free. But I had another on about 10 mins later stronger than the others, and 5 mins after that another one hit, I was thinking i was in real labor and wanted to stop it fast, so I had him start the bath and I had my doctors number ready to be called. But once i got into the tub and burned some candles they stopped and i have not had another one since last night. Should i be worried about going into labor now? And should I call my doctor and tell him what happen?

  • Let the doctor know, they can't help you if they don't know you need it. Better to get checked then to wait and let it happen. I had little cramps and went in to get checked a few hrs later (it was 4am with the cramps) they kept me and I had my son the next day ( I was also a week over due)

  • I would tell your Dr. Sometime when you get ina warm bath it relaxes you more and that is why your contractions slowed down.
