  • Just time them. If they become regular, every 7 minutes or so, call labor and delivery and let them know. they will tell you when to come in (: good luck

  • I'm 36 weeks now, but when I was 32 weeks my doctor told me if I had any kind of regular contraction that I needed to go ahead and get to the hospital. Just time them, and if they become strong enough they make you cry or regular then at least call the hospital.

  • also you might want to start drinking water ,about 32 ounces twice an hour. You maybe dehyderated and that can make contractions worse/stronger. As ajquinn said if they are strong enough to make you cry then contaction your doctor and head to hospital to get checked out/ or midwife. follow their instructions.

  • if theyre irregular, you have nothing to worry about...regularity is key, and youll know its time when they come and you cant talk breathe walk or think about ne thing else
