  • You just described them. If if gets to where they are close together & constant then go to L&D.

  • My contractions started on a Tues night right before bed and it felt like dull menstral cramps. It steadily increased in pain over the next day. They would be 9 mins apart for 2 hrs and then stop for 2. Start again at 7 mins apart for several hours and then stop. I finally went to the hospital when they got unbearable Wed night. I delivered Thurs morning.
