  • If your water breaks, call your OB/midwife. When you start having contractions, start timing them. They should be coming pretty regular and about 4 minutes apart. Though, you should really ask your OB/midwife when they want you to call or come in. Each one has different guidelines.

  • You should go if you are having several contractions. It is normal to have cramping here and there when you are close but if they are constant, start timing them.

  • If your water breaks you go in contractions or not, I timed my contractions til they were 6 minutes apart before I went in. They were about 4 min. apart when i got there.
