Question: Am I in labor? Help!!

For about 2 hours i have been having what i think are contractions, i feel them in my lower abdomen, and they are painful, enough for me to stop and breath, they do not last that long, but they do come and go, i tired timeing them, but its not use, they come at different times, but I do know they are causing me some pain, not severe but still painful, its this normal, should i just wait it out or go in?

  • I would wait until they get persistant or actually are more painful...call L&D and ask but I would wait if u dont wanna be stuck in a hosp room instead of ur own house

  • Relax and see how they go. they may go away or get close together. I would def wait to see if they get close together ebfor going to the hospital. Just make sure you have you bag packed and is ready to go just in case
    Good Luck.
