  • It could be the real deal. Call your doctor and see what they want you to do.

  • Keep timing start from the time it starts until the next one starts. If it is less then 5 call the doc, if not then lay down and rest and see if they go away. If they go away when you lay down they arelikely BH, if not then call the doc and SO, but don't go to the hosptial yet. Just keep timing until they are 5 minutes apart and then get to the hosptial.
