How far apart

were your contractions when you first started feeling them? With both of my kids I never felt a contraction until they were 3 minutes apart, makes me wonder what everyone else experienced.

  • mine started weird i was only in labour for 5 hours and the first 4hour of that i wasn't really sure because i would only get a contraction every 45mins it was only when i started to spot i thought i better get to hospital thats when they told me i was 7cm dialated and then i started getting them every 3-4 mins for about 15mins then my water broke and i needed to start pushing straight away that was nearly six years ago you would think with a cruzy labour like that i would of had more than the one lol but am finally trying again and hope it goes smoothly like the first time.

  • I never paid attention. Once I was induced they just happened and I just went with the flow. :)
