  • if you change positions or walk around and they are painful and start comming in a pattern then yes i would say get checked out because you could be in labor but most hospitals want you to be having contractions 5-6 min apart for an hour before you come in unless you are less than 36 weeks pregnate. good luck go move around and see if they continue.

  • i second what abbibaileylily says... except for the part where it says if you are less than 36 weeks pregnant, i personally would get checked if my contractions were 5 min apart and i was less than 36 weeks. it may be nothing but at the same time it may be something... my SIL went into labor and delivered at 23 weeks.. healthy baby.. just really small.

  • sorry i guess i wasnt clear on the 36 week part if you are less than 36 weeks and are having pains then i would go get checked immediatly so they can try and stop labor dont wait until you ar to far along this happened to me and i delivered at 31 weeks.
